Probabilistic planning

Adobe Stock 297905114

A probabilistic approach to planning means that risks and uncertainties are taken into account when scheduling and budgeting a project. Typically, Monte Carlo simulation is used as a technique to calculate the impact of these uncertainties on the plan. This course takes a tool-agnostic approach towards cost / schedule risk analysis. A tool specific training is recommended as follow-up.

Why this training

Any project is subject to risks & uncertainties. When planning a project, it is thus wise to take them into account. A probabilistic approach is doing exactly this. Because of the multitude of Monte Carlo simulation tools on the market, a tool agnostic approach has been chosen for this training.
