Faster projects, on-time, with team harmony – levelling up with Critical Chain Project Management (CCPM)
In September 2016, in Washington, D.C., USA, at the annual TOCICO International Conference, Mazda Board Chairman, Mr. Seita Kanai, shared a recent company breakthrough created through the adoption of CCPM. With four straight years of negative profits, and plummeting share price, Mazda needed to come up with a way to deliver car innovations without increasing costs and without decreasing employment. Using CCPM, Mazda cut its car development time in half, improved employee engagement and motivation, and significantly increased profits.
In April 2016, technology research firm, Gartner, published the following statements about CCPM:
Like many concepts, CCPM was ahead of its time. However, with the proliferation of digitization and the shortage of technical resources, the world may very well be ready for CCPM. – Gartner
Anyone who is working on projects and is concerned about on-time delivery should care about CCPM. Therefore, those who should care include CIOs, PMO leaders, portfolio managers, program managers, and project managers. – Gartner
Many other global organizations have begun to utilize this breakthrough project management approach to accelerate the speed of projects, uncover hidden capacity to increase the number of completed projects, significantly improve the on-time completion of projects, and to improve team member motivation, engagement, and harmony.
This presentation will introduce the breakthrough project management approach, Critical Chain Project Management (CCPM).
