It may seem counter intuitive to apply random uncertainty to our hard won schedule estimates but doing so can dramatically improve the realism of our prediction of the future. But how can we justify applying uncertainty/randomness to management? What’s a reasonable amount of uncertainty? How can you capture uncertainty and apply it to your schedule without adding to your already heavy workload? This session will use Barbecana’s Full Monte schedule risk analysis software to analyze the past and help produce happier clients in the future.
John Owen is vice president of operations at Barbecana, an industry leader in the development of software products that help companies validate and assure that their project schedules comply with best practices and to better understand the impact of uncertainty. John has over 30 years of experience with project management software. After managing a computer department dedicated to project scheduling in the oil and gas industry, John joined Welcom as European Technical Director in 1986 where he was responsible for product management of the Open Plan Schedule and Risk Analysis tool before he assumed the position of vice president of development in 2003. After the acquisition of Welcom by Deltek in 2006, John ultimately assumed the role of Director of Products and Strategy for schedule and risk products.
