WHITE PAPERS, BRIEFINGS, AND CASE STUDIES
White Paper: Theory of Constraints Project Management by Jacob and McClelland
Abstract: Whether your organization manages stand-alone or multiple projects, whether those projects are large or small, whether your customers are internal or external, or whether the nature of the work performed is product development, construction, design, IT, or service; most projects are difficult to manage because of two things:
- They involve uncertainty, and
- They involve three different and opposing commitments: Due date, budget, and content
In organizations that attempt to manage multiple concurrent projects with common, shared resources, the job is even more challenging. To learn more, see the white paper.
White Paper: Project Management as a Business Building Tool, by Michelle LaBrosse, PMP CEO, Cheetah Learning
Abstract: Project management is a powerful business tool. You can use Project Management (PM) throughout your organization to boost personal and collaborative productivity and ultimately show triple digit return on investment. In this paper, we'll explore the use of PM throughout the enterprise and show you how to build a standardized system that embeds PM best practices. You'll use our return on investment model to illustrate the benefits to your bottom line, and we'll show the success formula that Cheetah Learning used to achieve an average 500% per year revenue growth over the past four years. The power of project management isn't a theory.
