Managing Projects via Theory of Constraints
SESSION 4 | 2:00PM - 2:45PM | ROOM 5
Many companies' primary product or service is highly dependent on a project delivery model, which may be the single most challenging business model to pursue. There isn't a good track record in any industry of being able to consistently deliver projects on-time and on-budget with the expected outcomes. From software development to construction to job shops, many companies struggle with their ability to effectively plan and then execute against multiple client projects.
Learn how Theory of Constraints addresses key assumptions in project management that work against us, regardless of the scale of our projects. From the number of resources required to estimation methods and more, traditional project management techniques often leave us looking for a better way. The "constraint" in a project, known as critical chain in Theory of Constraints terms, informs us how to better plan and deliver on project expectations thereby reducing cycle times while increasing on-time and on-budget rates. Head back from this session with key concepts to leverage in your project office and/or teams.
