On today’s show we are talking about a concept in project management that is rarely discussed. When we think about the items that determine a project’s timeline, there are all of the text book steps in developing a project plan.

More advanced project management means identifying those project constraints that are critical in nature. This is taken from the theory of constraints work by Eli Goldratt.

The idea behind the theory of constraints is that there can be other critical resources apart from time. The impact of a critical resource can result in time delays, but in that instance it is not time that is the critical resource. This is a subtle but important distinction.
