Is My Schedule Ready for Risk Analysis?

Risk Track



The ultimate goal of schedule risk analysis is the ability to provide project stakeholders with a risk mitigation plan that allows the team to make informed decisions concerning future cost and schedule performance. However, in order to perform schedule risk analysis, a project schedule must first be valid, and provide a clear path to project completion. This study presents the steps our team takes in order to evaluate the readiness of project schedules prior to integrating a risk analysis. Often, project schedules contain flaws in duration and logic, are left un-statused, or were never developed to capture the true nature of project work. The assessment process our team follows helps to build more confidence and transparency into project work.
