The Big Red X Marks the Spot

Better project models while you wait? Not really. Some assembly required.

What is the value of knowing which link in your business processes will break next? Priceless? Absolutely. Unless you have given the circumstances surrounding managing projects in our matrix driven world as much thought as Tony Rizzo, why try to reinvent the wheel?

Eliyahu Goldratt gave us the vantage point of the "constraints oriented" mindset. First, in his first book "The Goal". Among his breakthroughs in the years following, the Critical Chain project management (CCPM) approach.

CPM (Critical Path Method) advanced the ability of teams to focus on the proper steps to create successes otherwise impossible. Think U2 spy plane. Critical Chain showed us that few organizations have unlimited resources. Our toolbox ought to reflect this fact. Tony Rizzo took CCPM to the next level... an order of magnitude (at least) beyond any thinking on the problems facing multiproject environments: Total-Matrix driven organizations. Like yours!

Do you have just one boss? Or, just one direct report?

Of course not.

So why (try to) manage your projects as if you do?


We all have the exactly the same problem: "We don't know, what we don't know." Hence I am pleased to offer an hour's worth of interaction with the master of all things "project".

Revelation in three parts:
  1. Introduction to the Total-Matrix Planning process (PowerPoint)
  2. How To Use TMx (a gotoMeeting session)
  3. Free Fully Functional TMx add-in for MS-Excel (30 day eval)
Seats are limited, get yours:

Requests for private (and confidential) demonstrations will gladly be considered. Again, contact SKI and make your curiosity known.

Already using TMx, but struggling with the rigors of such a highly efficient process? One on one tutoring is available in 3.5 hour sessions via gotoMeeting. I am embarrassed to share the price of this offering (it is that low)... but I digress.

Have a company that needs turned around? TMx might just be the required catalyst.

Call me.
