Nowadays organisations are confronted with many challenges due to the increasing market dynamics and expectations. On the one hand they must ensure their running business and on the other hand they have to innovate and develop new business opportunities. Under this pressure decision makers often tend to execute a broad range of topics/projects simultaneously.
Unfortunately, resources are in the most cases limited, and this causes an overload of the organisation and a high level of stress without getting things done properly. The greatest constraint of the organisation is called the bottleneck and limits the output of the overall system.
In this spotlight we present the critical chain project management approach. Using this methodology, that is based on the theory of constraints of Elli Goldratt, decision makers can easily and efficiently identify and resolve the bottleneck of their responsibility area to optimize their output.
