Critical Path Method for Project Managers
Critical path method (CPM) is a powerful technique used by project managers around the world to create project schedules and track their team’s progress against the timeline. It helps them to monitor their projects and take action, as needed, to mitigate schedule risk and bring projects in on time. CPM is the single largest topic in the Project Management Institute’s PMBOK®, and knowledge of it makes project managers more marketable for future opportunities.
