    Speaker Company

    Chris DelGardo, PMP is the president of Knowledge Formation in Houston, TX. Chris has over 26 years in management, including 18 years in project management and business process development. 

    Chris started in small projects – managing a few internal software projects within Dell Computer. Later, he moved on to Waste Management, as the Project Manager responsible for the execution stage of the WasteRoute project in the Midwest and Canada groups. His teams were responsible for the logistics optimization of the entire fleet of vehicles across a geographically dispersed region.

    For 12 years, Chris consulted for major capital projects in the energy sector ranging from $10 million to $40+ billion across six continents. Key areas of expertise include probabilistic cost and schedule risk analysis, project execution planning, project framing, corporate project management system training, value improving practices, etc.

    Chris has conducted project management training and PMI courses since 2007, he has spoken at several industry conferences, and volunteers his time at PMI Houston as a presenter & as the Director of Programs West.

    Topic Description:
    Even with our 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, improve 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 the project team with a holistic view of the project’s risk profile for effective risk mitigation.

    This presentation will provide an introduction to probabilistic risk analysis, share techniques that can
    be used in any project, in any industry, and share some examples of how this technique has been used to improve project decision making. 
    This Session Qualifies for:
