Projects often do not go “to plan” – and the consequences can be severe.
Yet most of the modes of failure for projects could have been identified up front – and either mitigated or built into the project strategy.
Systematic Schedule Risk Analysis (SRA) can be the answer. SRA’s are designed to identify – and quantify – project risks and their potential impact on the project. Risks include not just ‘known’ potential problems, but also the impact if fundamental planning assumptions turn out to not be valid.
A quality SRA at the start (and during) and project can help set proper expectations and drive the team to mitigate potential risks before they happen.
