As we all are very well aware, bad multi-tasking is a big sore evil that has major negative effects on performances in any environment, and in particular in projects environment. To diminish bad multi-tasking in projects environment we use, as an integral part of the Critical Chain Project Management (CCPM) solution, the freeze mechanism. This is the hardest step to get collaboration for. If we wish to get the full collaboration of all relevant functions on the freeze – and at the same time to accelerate performance – it behooves us to sharpen our understanding regarding the freeze mechanism.
