About the Presentation

Traditional PM thinking and practice tends to view projects as “single event” endeavors, but in reality most project-centric environments have a continuous flow of projects executed by a stable resource pool. Therefore, by applying flow-maximization principles from the Theory of Constraints, Lean, and Agile, project-centric organizations can achieve 2X or higher throughput of project completions, with no additional resources—and do so while de-stressing the workforce. This presentation will lay out the conceptual foundation for such improvement, show examples of how such dramatic jumps in performance have been done in practice, and provide insights for how any organization might replicate those jumps.
