No Limits Leadership, Inc. has this white paper authored by Allan Elder titled “The Five Diseases of Project Management”. Allan was interviewed on Episode 57 of the Project Management Podcast a short time ago. This is an overview of some of the problems addressed by Critical Chain project management.

He identifies 5 reasons why projects struggle, and a tiny peek at how CCPM addresses them:

? Bad multi-tasking
? Student syndrome
? Parkinson’s law
? Task dependency
? PM math where 2+2=5
