Pinnacle Strategies helps client, a global provider of technology for the energy industry, implement Critical Chain Project Management to complete 80 days of work in 60 days and significantly reduce schedule risk.

Elegant Solutions for Complex Problems

Pinnacle Strategies announces that one of its clients, a global provider of technology for the energy industry, has completed their work ahead of schedule as a result of Pinnacle Strategies’ help implementing a Critical Chain Project Management (CCPM) process.

Pinnacle Strategies’ challenge was to help the client, located in Norway, meet project deadlines. The client’s multiple, complex projects made management almost impossible, risking deadline failures—and potential penalties for the client if they could not make those deadlines.

Pinnacle Strategies rapidly delivered results by helping the client:

  • Set a delivery date based on the highest probability of completion, while allowing for variation in execution
  • Base estimates on net task durations, then create a collective time buffer that could be distributed to any resource or task as needed
  • Identify the bottleneck, which enabled the team to forecast reliable completion dates and direct resources to the bottlenecks where they were most needed
  • Use “what-if” capabilities, which enabled the team to understood what would happen to projects if resources were applied in a different manner than originally planned, making educated changes to the current plan
  • Focus on “red zone” tasks only, the team directed its resources to the tasks most critical for the timely and complete fulfillment of the entire project
  • Monitor progress, not by the efficiency of individual departments, but by the overall productivity and progress of the entire system

As a result, the team completed work ahead of schedule with less stress. In the first three months of CCPM execution, the team completed 89 days of project work in just 60. Meetings that used to absorb hours each day were reduced to just two, twenty-minute meetings per week. The project team became a model of “what desired execution looks like.”
