About The Billion Dollar Solution

Every day, corporations waste huge amounts of money through ineffective and unreliable management practices. In The Billion Dollar Solution, Rob Newbold has finally lifted the veil on ProChain Project Management, the approach that ProChain Solutions has been quietly implementing for more than a decade in some of the best-known companies in the world. Through clear, concise descriptions of needed tools and measurements along with frequent real-world examples, you’ll see how your company can dramatically improve the management of projects and resources. You’ll discover how you can elevate reliability, speed, and productivity in order to keep those billions for the bottom line. You’ll understand the practical reality of the solution through the extended story of Imventure, a fictitious pharmaceutical company. You’ll learn:

  • Where the billions are going, and why;
  • The common-sense principles you need to understand;
  • Which tools you need and how they work;
  • Key elements of the implementation process; and
  • The part played by critical chain scheduling in a world-class solution.
