Why read it?

1 author picked Critical Chain as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?

When I read this book, it was like an epiphany. Suddenly, I understood what—beyond all the doctrines and pub talkactually slows down projects and thus impairs the economic performance of companies. It is our own management mechanisms and beliefs about how we think we can get a grip on projects. Shortly after reading this novel, we were able to perform nothing short of miracles in a technology company I was working for at the time: Halving project times, doubling productivity. You have to have witnessed that to really believe it... Read this book!
