Collation of data inputs: Completing risk analysis with confidence

The success of Cost and Schedule Risk Analysis (CSRA) begins and ends with the very first stage of the process; the collation of data inputs. Quite simply, the quality of the data - covering cost, schedule, uncertainties and risks – that project teams put in, will determine the quality of the risk insights they get out. By taking the time to get this initial stage right, project teams can make better-informed decisions and improve project outcomes.

Beyond what you know: Realising extra value from Cost and Schedule Risk Analysis

The majority of project teams conduct cost and schedule risk analysis (CSRA) for one simple reason – more realistic information = better business decisions.

Revealing the likely impact of individual risks on a project’s cost and time to complete, CSRA is a valuable tool in every project team’s toolbox. It ultimately enables organisations to turn their project risk data into meaningful messages that inform project teams, guide their decision-making and engage them in a way that many traditional project management techniques simply cannot.
