About this Webinar

This webinar is part of the Basic TOC series, it is FREE for all and no prior knowledge in TOC or CCPM is required.

Planning and Running Projects – Demonstrating the problem and the basic insights behind the TOC.

CCPM, Critical Chain Project Management, is the official name for the TOC application for running projects. While quite a lot of its detailed features are still discussed and debated it is mandatory that we should view again the basic ideas.

Eli Schragenheim has developed a simulator, on the request of Dr. Goldratt, in order to analyze and demonstrate the problems and the proposed solution. A learning mechanism has been added to the simulator and it will be extensively used in this webinar to demonstrate the basic ideas.

The art of Project Management depends a lot on managing the very high uncertainty in projects. The simulator is tuned for that, including the impact of the behavior of the people involved when they have to follow the planned time of every task.

The problem of multi-tasking is going to be demonstrated as well, however, maybe not to its full devastating impact.
