Critical Chain Method Primer


Master the Critical Chain in just 4 hours

The Critical Chain Management Method is a relatively recent method and news started spreading about this project management ‘new kid on the block’ a handful of years back when Eliyahu Goldratt published his novel about it. The novel was an interesting read, but focused how the technique EVOLVED rather than HOW to apply it. If you want NEED, the ability to apply it within your projects, then this is the course for you!


Critical Chain Practitioner

It’s well known that Eliyahu’s method involves the use of buffers and takes into consideration available resources and the bottlenecks that arise from those, but little is known about how you should take a project and BLEND this method into it. I will show you how.

Critical Chain vs Critical Path

Critical Chain vs Critical Path is the first question that pops into mind, and that in turn raises an even bigger question – should you use BOTH? The answer is YES.

Critical Chain Primer

To blend and use Critical Chain, you need the answers to:

  • How do I use it with project management methodologies such as PMP and PRINCE2?
  • Can it be applied to Agile projects?
  • How do I apply it to planning tools such as Microsoft Project ?

In fact, I show you how in easy steps to carry out ALL of the following:

  • Critical Chain Origins
  • Critical Path verses Critical Chain
  • Critical Path Problems
  • Critical Chain Advantages
  • The Critical Chain Method
  • Critical Chain Estimating
  • As Late As Possible Scheduling
  • Critical Chain Buffers
  • PERT Estimates
  • Project Level PERT
  • Buffer Size Cut and Paste
  • Buffer Size Adaptive with density
  • Buffer Size Root Squared
  • RSEM with PERT
  • Buffer Size resource tightness
  • Approaches to resource conflicts
  • PRINCE2 Buffer Use
  • Critical Chain and Agile
  • Critical Chain Monitoring and Control
  • Critical Chain with Microsoft Project

What is included?

You get FOUR streaming hi-definition MP4 videos. This is around 136 minutes of me teaching you the Critical Chain techniques and accompanying Handbook. Estimated length of course is 4 hours, including some time for reading, pausing, pondering and (of course) drinking a coffee or two.
