Por otra parte, existen grandes cantidades de tareas pendientes en los escritorios de los Gerentes. Tareas que deben resolver en forma individual o grupal. El tiempo de los gerentes es muy valioso para las empresas. This method revolutionized the way of project management and scheduling, as it overcomes the limitations of the Critical Path. It takes into account the improper handling of the uncertainty that makes the most of the projects are completed in the expected time, with the expected cost and expected quality.

Shelves: business As an Engineer I am used to reading highly structured texts where the content is clearly partitioned into numbered sections with a series of formulas and figures to present the theory.
After reading the theory in each section, Ill typically find a number of problems designed to test and enrich my understanding before proceeding to the next topic. Eliyahu Goldratt, who is a physicist turned business consultant, chose to break from this conventional writing style by presenting his ideas in the form As an Engineer I am used to reading highly structured texts where the content is clearly partitioned into numbered sections with a series of formulas and figures to present the theory.
Eliyahu Goldratt, who is a physicist turned business consultant, chose to break from this conventional writing style by presenting his ideas in the form of business novels. If you have not read The Goal, I highly recommend you read it, however it is not a prerequisite to understand the book Critical Chain. As the characters are presented, the reader learns about their various problems and their need for finding solutions.
The reader then follows the characters through their journey of defining the problem and learning new ways to look at the problem along with demonstrations of how the conventional views of the problem unexpectedly lead to solutions with less than desirable results.
The journey then continues with the characters finding and implementing successful solutions to their problems. And often after solving the business problem, the character learns to apply the new techniques back to his person life and other problems he had not expected.
As an example, the reality of uncertainty in time estimates for an activity is presented. If you are familiar with The Goal and its definition of the concepts of throughput, inventory and operating expense, you may be able to anticipate how these concepts, which were applied to the manufacturing plant, should be applied to Project Management. However some of the relationships are subtle and the differences are important. To me, applying the Theory of Constraints to Project Management is analogous to applying vibration theory of a mechanical system mass, damper and spring to an electrical system inductance, resistance and capacitance.
If you are familiar with these physics concepts, you know that it is useful to apply your experiences with a dynamic electrical system to your experiences with a dynamic mechanical system and vise versa. But you must be careful in your comparisons if you want to derive meaningful results. The same can be said when comparing the flow of material through a manufacturing plant and the flow of completed milestones in a project plan.
I encourage you to read the book to fully appreciate this. However, it is not common in my experience. His style is a welcomed change to conventional textbooks and is effective.
