The Critical Path
SEPTEMBER 15, 2019
In the world of project management, there exists a useful concept knows as the “critical path” for a project. A critical path is that part of the project which has the fewest available resources that also has the most downstream dependencies. In other words, it’s the step in the project that prevents many other later steps in the project to be started. For example, in a construction project, the critical path early in the project is the architect’s blueprint.
