    To date the most compreshensive text on Critcal Chain Project Management

    This book is the definitive text on Critical Chain Project Management (CCPM). It covers nearly every aspect of CCPM and the use of the Theory of Constraints (TOC) as a methodology in project management. Mr. Leach provides plenty of examples and significant discussion of the entire subject of CCPM. He covers the relationship of this methodology to other methodologies, inception, Project start-up, both single and multiple project situations, how to move from a currently used methodology to CCPM and direct application of TOC. This book is the single book needed to train, implement and use Critical Chain Project Management.
    Although not a requirement, I had read Goldratt's book prior as my introduction to Critical Chain theory and that was a benefit. But Mr. Leach covers the subject so well that this is probably not a requirement. For people that are knew to Critical Chain or senior managers that are not directly involved in the implementation Goldratt's book may be a better starting place.
