Integrated Cost & Schedule Risk Analysis (ICSRA) provides powerful insight into how a project’s critical path and cost can deviate when Estimating Uncertainty and Risk are considered. These insights can be far superior to just using the critical path, or performing separate Quantitative Schedule Risk Analysis (QSRA) and Quantitative Cost Risk Analysis (QCRA).

This webinar presented on Tuesday 14 November provided an overview and demonstrated progressive approaches and techniques to ICSRA which can be used at various stages throughout a project’s lifecycle, and using outputs to make better informed decisions and consider additional actions.

The session content is aimed at project professionals at all levels to demystify a method which is often thought of as too complicated or unnecessary.

It is also aimed at corporate and board professionals to express the supplementary understanding and awareness provided by ICSRA, why it should be executed on major projects and programmes, and the benefits of implementing ICSRA into projects and organisations.
