    Topic Description: How Long Will It Take to Complete My Project? A Study in Probabilistics Using Monte Carlo Analysis

     

    Even with a growing knowledge base of project management, delay and cost overrun continue to plague projects of all sizes, across multiple industries.  Cost and Schedule Risk Assessment (CSRA), when completed at key times in the project lifecycle, improves the potential for project success and predictability by helping stakeholders identify and quantify the risks and opportunities.  By applying Monte Carlo analysis to the project cost and schedule, project managers can provide investment decision makers with a realistic and quantified range of uncertainty around the budget estimates and completion dates.  This can also provide project team with a holistic view of the project’s risk profile for effective risk mitigation.

    Why is it important to join Mark to
    "Boost your leadership IQ"?    
                                                      

    • Companies across the U.S.  Say it is becoming increasingly difficult to find applicants who can communicate clearly, take initiative, problem-solve and get along with co-workers.
    • Companies are beefing up training programs in soft skill areas….you have to be able to work in teams, and can’t be the general of your army.
    • In a WSJ  survey of 900 Executives last year indicated that 92% felt that soft skills were equally important or more important than technical skills.”  And 89% said they were having a difficult time finding people with these attributes.
    • A  2016 LinkedIn study indicated that the most sought after soft skills included: the ability to communicate, followed by the capacity for teamwork, punctuality, critical thinking, social savvy, creativity and adaptability.
