CCPM Transformation Challenges
September 7, 2015

CCPM is a proven and effective project management methodology often resulting in significant improvements in terms of project lead-time reduction, on-time delivery, resource efficiency, and overall project throughput increase.

Despite its great effectiveness many businesses struggle with the quick and successful implementation of the CCPM methodology. Many of them identify real implementation challenges and sometimes use them as an excuse to stop or simply slow down the CCPM implementation to the point where its value is substantially diminished.

Based on our experience working with a number of clients across different industries, some of these challenges include:

  • Lack of buy–in to cutting task durations
  • Difficulty to perform meaningful Resource Management / Scheduling in a dynamic CCPM driven framework
  • Managing, project related, technical and business risks
  • Aligning outside vendors and resources with the internal schedule
  • Starting Feeding Chains too early
  • Understanding Flow Index (% Critical Chain complete / % Project Buffer consumed) change impact on project schedule – across the organization
  • Prioritizing among competing Feeding Buffers
  • Communicating with customers requiring typical PMI driven Gantt Chart views

While our clients and their industries differ substantially, the above issues seem to be shared across a wide spectrum of organizations slowing down their transformation to a much more successful project environment based on CCPM.

The intent of this presentation is to identify the top 10 major obstacles to a successful CCPM transformation, discuss their root causes, and define some solutions.
