Improving Project Portfolio Performance with Buffer-Type Flexibility and Task-level DBR
Bahadir Inozu, Ph.D., NOVACES, LLC
Mike Hannan, Fortezza Consulting
Hilbert Robinson, Delta Airlines
This presentation focuses on two emerging techniques to improve project portfolio performance within a CCPM framework:
1) The addition of scope buffers and budget buffers to augment CCPM’s traditional emphasis on schedule buffers, boosting portfolio reliability while allowing harmonious integration of scope-buffered project methods (such as Agile) into CCPM.
2) The addition of DBR, Lean, and Agile methods to augment CCPM’s traditional emphasis on single tasking, boosting the flow of task completions to improve portfolio throughput.
While these two techniques have demonstrated performance improvements in software-development project portfolios, we will also present how they can also be applied in other project-centric domains.
