Combining Critical Chain and Incremental Development

Cutting content seems to be the prevalent way of meeting deadlines in projects that are running late. But why waste effort and time on things that most likely, will go at the first sign of trouble? Why don’t make the decisions about what is important and what is not up-front, and only start work on the latter if we have the necessary time to do it?

By combining critical chain and incremental development, we can create a plan and execute projects, which guaranties, with a set probability, the delivery of an agreed subset of the total functionality by a stipulated date.
