Plano, Texas (PRWEB) April 24, 2009
Pinnacle Strategies announced today that its president, Mark Woeppel, will be presenting a Webinar titled, Projects in Less Time; Using Critical Chain to Reduce Project Lead Times. The event is scheduled for April 29th 8am-9:30am PDT. In this presentation, he'll show how managers can reduce project lead times by one third by adopting a few simple project process changes.
"The Critical Chain Project Management (CCPM) concepts are very important to project managers, yet few of them understand the possibilities this technology holds for their own projects," says Mark Woeppel, president of Pinnacle. "Many project managers assume that doing things "better", such as planning more effectively or improving communication will improve project performance. While improving skills proficiency can't hurt, it doesn't address the root cause for project pain. It's like giving aspirin to a person with a broken arm; they may feel better, but their arm is still unusable. This presentation (http://pinnacle-strategies.com/CCPM%20Webinar.htm) will show not only why that's entirely the wrong approach, but will give some concrete actions project managers can take to improve their project's performance immediately."
