This is the most complete book on critical chain that we have read. Although Critical Chain, by Elihyu Goldratt, is an easier book to read, this book covers the topic in far more depth. Critical Chain Project Management is a "Must Read" for practitioners and implementers, but probably "too in the weeds" for executives (who should stick with Goldratt's book).
The Artech House bestseller Critical Chain Project Management now builds on its own success in a second edition packed with fresh, field-tested insights on how to plan, lead, and complete projects with unprecedented efficiency. It provides project managers with expanded coverage on critical chain planning, multiple project selection and management, critical change project networks, new Agile and Lean techniques related to critical chain project management (CCPM), and effective strategies for bringing about the organizational change required to succeed with this breakthrough method. This cutting-edge work spells out all the CCPM techniques, tools, and theory managers need to develop critical chain solutions and apply them to their challenging projects. Moreover, the book helps managers master key project skills not covered in other critical chain books, such as scope control and risk management.
