Critical Chain case study and results

Philip Marris, who I met at this year's TOC ICO conference in Chicago has published a nice case study of Critical Chain, focused on problems common to the pharmaceutical industry. (But then these problems should sound familiar in many industries.) The critical chain to reduce the time to market and increase productivity (pdf in French and English).

The article covers a lot of familiar ground for people who are into CCPM, but I always find it interesting to see how people put together their description of the approach.  The best part of the article? It ends with an extensive table, describing successes applying CCPM in the pharma industry and beyond.  Nice.
