Critical Chain Project Management (CCPM) is fast emerging as a major step change 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, and is predicted to become a dominant methodology within the next few years.

CCPM changes many typical project management practices and behaviours, and by these changes removes the in-built inefficiencies in traditional project management, enabling projects to run faster and with more effective protection against uncertainty, whilst providing much improved visibility of progress and monitoring both at the single project and multi-project (programme and portfolio) levels.

This presentation introduces the main principles of CCPM and compares and contrasts them with current project management practices, with an overview of CCPMs history and development, use of the methods in programme and portfolio situations, current adoption in industry, and implementation considerations.
