New webinar: Risk Analysis of Mega Projects

Intaver Institute announced new webinar: Risk Analysis of MegaProject on September 14, 2021. Schedule and cost risk analysis of large programs in can be complex, time consuming, difficult to perform, and may not give meaningful results. What are the best approaches to minimize efforts and allow for a valid risk analysis?

In this webinar, we will look the advantages and drawbacks of both approaches and demonstrate new features in RiskyProject that help to simplify the process while ensuring the validity of both the risk model and the results of the analysis.

New webinar “Integrating Project Risk Analysis and Project Control”

Intaver Institite announced new webinar “Integrating Project Risk analysis and Project Control” on June 1st, 2021. Project risk analysis and project control are not completely separate processes. In a well-managed project, the two processes are integrated during project execution. Project control helps to understand how much  work has been performed, how long it has taken, and how much has been spent. However, the project risks are also not static, new risks can  appear, other risks may be retired, and risk probability and impact  may change. Regular project risk analysis allows project teams to forecast what  happen with project on each phase of project execution. In this webinar you will learn how to:

  • Track actual project performance that includes risk
  • Update your schedule risk model and run a simulation on each phase of the project
  • Forecast project cost and schedule based on results of project control

New Article “Improving Performance of Monte Carlo Simulations for Project Portfolios Risk Analysis”

Intaver Institute published new article “Improving Performance of Monte Carlo Simulations of Project Portfolios Risk Analysis”. Project portfolios tend to be large and very complex and any comprehensive analysis of them mirrors this complexity. Project portfolio Monte Carlo risk analysis requires additional consideration as they can have a large number projects with interdependencies between projects.  This article explains a number of modeling methods, which are intended to improve performance of Monte Carlo simulations. Most algorithms described in this article either already implemented in RiskyProject or will be implemented in next version in 2021.

New article: Project Risk Analysis for Information Systems

Intaver Institute published new article “Project Risk Analysis for Information Systems“. Development and operation of information systems has significant risks and uncertainties. To minimize the impact and reduce the probability of such risks organizations involved in development of information systems applied project risk analysis and risk management processes. The paper describes how the project risk analysis process is tailored for information system projects. It expands the scope of traditional project risk analysis by utilizing an enterprise risk register. Risks are assigned to different projects within a portfolio, and to different tasks within projects. Quantitative risk analysis using Monte Carlo simulations helps to determine risk adjusted project schedules, rank risks within risk register, and determine efficiency of risk mitigation and response efforts. The process was applied as part of the project management of multiple information system projects worldwide.

New Webinar: Risk Mitigation Planning and Scenario Analysis

Intaver Institute announced new webinar “Risk Mitigation Planning and Scenario Analysis”. The webinar will be held on Tuesday April 7, 2020, 10 am – 11 am MDT. Risk analysis will not only tell us how critical are certain risks, but also what is the most effective way to minimize the impact of these risks on your project. Some mitigation plans can cost more than others and significantly increase duration of the project. One of the way to determine efficiency of mitigation plans is perform risk analysis with multiple scenarios. Scenario analysis is useful for selecting optimal project strategies. In this webinar, you will learn how to:

  • Create risk handling scenarios using baselines
  • Compare scenarios impacts on project cost and schedule
  • Analyze mitigation plan using multiple scenarios
  • View a risk score across multiple baselines

New Webinar: Cost Risk Analysis

Intaver Institute announced new webinar: Cost Risk Analysis. The webinar will be held Tuesday, January 21, 2020. Time: 10 am – 11 am MDT. Cost risk analysis is the companion to schedule risk analysis, but it is often not integrated with the schedule risk analysis. Project cost is uncertain: it is affected by events and uncertainties. To keep a project on budget, it is important to create risk adjusted project budget. It is also critical to perform cost control with risks and uncertainties when project progresses. In this webinar we will show how to:

  • Perform a simple cost risk analysis
  • Perform cost analysis using schedule risks and uncertainties
  • Perform cost analysis using resource risks
  • Analyze project cash flow
  • Perform project cost tracking with risks and uncertainties
  • Apply Earned Value Method (EVM) to control cost with risks and uncertainties
