Project Management the Systems Thinking Way
(1- Day Programme – 8 hours)
There’s a reason why projects almost never finish on time and regularly go over budget. The concept of “finite capacity” is not always well understood, and multitasking predominates.
Intelligent Management, instead, uses a systemic algorithm for managing projects called ‘Critical Chain’.
This course provides the basics of Project Management as practiced within the Theory of Constraints using the Critical Chain algorithm.
- managing finite resources
- identifying the Critical Chain
- the damage done by multitasking
- Independence software
- solving the Project Manager’s dilemma
- -using “buffer management” as an effective control mechanism
Participants will gain an understanding of:
- the concept of finite capacity,
- the problem of “multitasking”
- how to manage a project through the Critical Chain and ‘project buffer’
This module introduces the basic concepts of Project Management using the Critical Chain approach, and how this can be supported with the use of a finite capacity software (Independence).
