Plano, TX -- (ReleaseWire) -- 10/16/2012 -- Even lean manufacturing companies continue to experience failure to deliver projects to schedule, budget, and scope and according to Mark Weoppel, CEO of Pinnacle Strategies, “More companies are experiencing cancelled projects at an alarming rate. This problem affects all projects in all industries from basic R&D to IT to construction. Critical Chain Project Management (CCPM) enables firms to consistently deliver projects in half the time, within or under budget. CCPM users also report improved quality of work life for project team members.”
CCPM / Lean Project Management
The demands to do more with less, and do it quicker, continue to characterize all project environments today. Many companies have moved to management by project, and proceeded to train people in the ways of the Project Management Institute Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK), or industry specific approaches such as Software Engineering Institute Capability Maturity Model (CMM) or the Construction Industry Institute (CII).
Many managers become lost in the complexity of these heavy methods, and are looking for relief. The new CCPM method focuses efforts and project teams to create repeatable project success, and accelerate project completion; usually by at least one half the previous time.
CCPM by Pinnacle Strategies integrates with the important parts of the CMM and PMBOK, and makes them work for clients.
