pipeline managementpipeline management - - In multi-project critical chain project management, the management of the execution of an already decided project portfolio, including setting starting times for the projects based on staggering projects according to the drum or virtual drum (integration point, heavily loaded resource, strategic resource or policy) and managing the release of projects based on conditions at the drum or virtual drum.
Usage: Pipeline management differs from the business management process and the portfolio management process. Pipeline management does not involve the selection of which projects to execute.
