The Project Production Institute cordially invites you to an Introduction to Project Production Management (PPM) seminar.

“In the past, project planning focused solely on ‘what, who and when,’ instead of also looking at ‘how’ Project Production Systems are mapped, modeled and optimized, which is key to Project Production Management.”

– Past PPI event attendee from Chevron

98% of Projects are missing their objectives – why?

With all of the most advanced technology, sophisticated systems, decades of research and billions of investment, why are projects continuing to fail at such an epic rate?

Whether the projects represent construction of large scale Data Center programs, Deployment of Electric/Autonomous Vehicle Infrastructure, or Next Generation Telecommunications Networks, the economic, societal and political implications are significant and long-lasting.

There is a gap. Project management methods alone do not consider basic project physics governing work activities related to engineering and construction. Project Production Management (PPM) is a proven method to resolve this gap. PPM applies Operations Science and Industrial Engineering to complex project execution & delivery.

Project Production Management (PPM) is the proven method to resolve this gap.
