"Project management is a critical tool for all supply chain management professionals to deal with the rapidly changing requirements in the supply chain. ISCEA believes that understanding supply chains is not enough to make a supply chain professional world class because they also require project management skills to rapidly implement change in their dynamic environments. Therefore, ISCEA has decided to partner with EXEPRON, the industry leader in Critical Chain Project Management Software to develop the ISCEA CCCPM (Certified Critical Chain Project Manager) workshop and certification program. We think this CCCPM program closely aligns with our current Certified Demand Driven Planner (CDDP) program because both are built on a solid foundation of the Theory of Constraints. We are delighted about our partnership and think this program will be a great success for ISCEA, EXEPRON, and all of the participants in the program,”
Dr. Charles A Watts, Executive Director of ISCEA
First introduced by Dr. Eliyahu M. Goldratt in 1997, Critical Chain Project Management (CCPM) is a relatively new, innovative method for planning, scheduling, and managing performance in a project environment based on Goldratt’s Theory of Constraints (TOC). CCPM was the first significant change about project management thinking since PERT and CPM were created in the 1950’s. CCPM differs from traditional project management methods which rely on completing tasks in a specific order with inflexible scheduling. Using the Critical Chain methodology, resources are applied to the tasks requiring immediate attention with greater flexibility, resulting in keeping projects on schedule, withinbudget and delivered on time. CCPM is applied in single-project and multi-project environments (PPM – Project Portfolio Management) where resources are shared across multiple projects.
