A business novel introducing the use of the Theory of Constraints in Project Management.

Like Goldratt’s book The Goal, Critical Chain is written as a novel not like a project manager's how-to guide. This book is a story about a professor trying to attain his tenure at a university's business school. The plot is used to maintain interest in the subject and provide a real life feel to the book. It provides plenty of real-world examples. The plot of the novel is three fold:

  • A professor trying to become tenured,
  • A business school's struggle improve enrollment,
  • Teaching philosophy,
  • Applying the Theory of Constraints to project management

The reason for the book is the last point.
