New Article: Expected Value in Project Management

Intaver Institute published new article: Expected Value in Project Management. There are so many analytical techniques and tools, some of which are very complex and require a lot of effort to perform and others which are very industry specific. One of the very simple techniques is expected value analysis. This analysis is a choice engineering method, which means that it is more of a mental exercise rather than a strict and formal project management process. At the same time, going through the expected value thinking process may significantly improve quality of decisions.

RiskyProject celebrates 10th anniversary

On October 30th 2004, Intaver Institute released RiskyProject version 1. Shortly after, the first order for a single license was received on the online store and with the delivery of the license code, Intaver Institute had its first paying customer. Originally designed as an academic exercise to transform critical event chain methodology into working software, it was so well received by the small group of users that the decision was made to commercialize it and sell in as a project risk analysis package to software managers and other decision makers.

Moving forward 10 years, RiskyProject Suite now has 3 versions (Professional, Lite, and Enterprise) and thousands of users worldwide in a variety of industries including: aerospace, defence, engineering, pharmaceutical and healthcare, construction, IT, and research and development.

PMI 2014 Global Congress North America

Intaver recently attended the recent PMI 2014 Global Congress North America in Phoenix, Arizona. Intaver Institute presented RiskyProject software Suite including recently released web-based project risk management software RiskyProject Cloud as well as RiskyProject Professional and Lite version 6.1.

The annual awards dinner was slated to take place on Saturday October 25th had to be hastily relocated when the downtown Sheraton suffered an electrical fire, which meant that we were able to see a well thought out risk management plan unfold. With the Sheraton ballroom unavailable, the organizers quickly put their contingency plan into effect and moved the entire event to the local conference center that was fortunately close by. The event came off on time and without a hitch, the 700 attendees all impressed and no hint of the hasty set up of seating and transfer of hundreds of meals. The highlight for Intaver was the PMI’s David I. Cleland Project Management Literature Award recognizes the author(s) of a single publication that significantly advances project management knowledge, concepts, and practice which was presented to authors Dr. Lev Virine and Michael Trumper, for “Project Think: Why good project managers make poor decisions” published by Gower in 2013.

In addition to the awards ceremony, Dr. Virine’s presentation on risk management was well received and had many attendees drop by the booth to express their gratitude for a interesting talk. We would like to thank all of those PMI conference goers who took the time out to visit our exhibit. There was lots of interest and good questions and ideas exchanged over the 2 and a half days. Congratulations to the lucky winner of the draw for a free license of RiskyProject.

New Video: Managing Risk Visibility and Risk Approval in RiskyProject Enterprise

This video covers how the risk approval process is implemented in RiskyProject Enterprise – project and portfolio risk management and risk analysis software. The risk approval process is enabled using risk visibility and user roles. When a user identifies a risk and assigns it to a project, it can be shared with other projects using risk visibility. Risk visibility defines in which sections of the portfolio the risk is available. If a risk is available and can affect a project, the project manager can then assign it to the project with probability and impact as part of the risk assessment process. In this way a risk that is common to multiple projects in the portfolio can be assessed and managed at any level of the portfolio hierarchy. Click here to play the video.
