   An introduction to Critical Chain Project Management

Date Wednesday 21 May 2014
Time 19:00 - refreshments from 18:30
Speaker Gary Palmer - Critical Point Consulting www.criticalpoint.co.uk
Location EC-1-12 - Coventry University
Abstract Critical Chain Project Management (CCPM) is fast emerging as a major improvement in project management, dramatically improving project speed and predictability. Although currently relatively little known in the UK, it has become well-established and highly successful in America, India and Japan; to the extent that it is now used by many leading organisations including the US Military and Nasa, and has become the standard project management methodology required to be used for all government projects in Japan, approximately 20,000 projects per annum.

CCPM is now an accepted methodology by many standards organisations, including the PMI and APM, and is referenced in both organisations project management standards documentation (BoK).
