This paper provides a substantially better way to prioritize the tasks within a multi-project environment than the one currently advocated by Critical Chain Project Management and used by its practitioners. This new method differs from the currently accepted method on two grounds. Firstly, it results in significantly high probability of achieving a faster project completion, and secondly, it makes the task priority signals far more objective and easy to derive. The author uses a computer simulation to check 970987 possible cases of a resource conflict occurring within a project and compares the resulting lead-time from the generally accepted task prioritization method of CCPM and the proposed new rule of task prioritization within a project.
