Risk Assessment Window: COVID-19 Trend for the next 9-months

The talk of going back to work has been heating up in the last three months prior to August 2021. While we are all hoping to get back on track to pre-pandemic time, it is prudent to observe first what will happen for the rest of the year before declaring any form of normalcy in the get-back-to work order.

So the timeframe from now to the First Quarter of 2022 is the acid test. It will show where we are in this COVID19 situation. It looks like many Canadians are still in the category of most at risk despite having been vaccinated, so they’d probably like to see that there will be no resurgence of the pandemic in the coming winter months like what happened in the winter months of 2020.

What about Project Schedule Quality and Acumen Fuse?

The correctness, accuracy, completeness, and usefulness of a Schedule Quantitative Risk Analysis (SQRA) depends heavily on the quality of planning data used for input or, plainly, the quality of the project schedule.

Managing the Contentious Project Calendars

The project calendar is a contentious element of a schedule. The challenge here is that the project schedules are often not talking about one or two calendars. The project, through the schedulers, has a nasty habit of creating numerous calendars.
I have reviewed one major project a few years back that had 11 calendars. The contractors prepared the sub-projects separately, thinking that each one will have a different calendar. The good thing is that, upon closer inspection, five of the eleven calendars were practically the same.

Many planners/schedulers do not take enough care of their schedule calendars. Taking on a new project schedule without inspecting the attributes of the assigned calendars becomes the norm.

Christmas Day Reflection : “It’s about God, Families and Friends.”

It is my prayer that many of you will be spending some great time with your respective close families and friends. In all the upcoming festive gatherings, make sure you don’t forget the grandparents who started you all! They are very much a part of each family unit that came to be. They’d be thrilled with even just a call from their kids and of course, from their loveable, innocent and amazing grandchildren.

In this challenging time of the pandemic, togetherness can be expressed in many ways. To those belonging in the same household, it’s your chance to savor the closeness that many can’t enjoy and few can boast of.

How to Visualize Risk Probability

Probability is a measure of uncertainty of risk consequence. If the impact is zero, then the logical consideration is gone. There is no risk because it will not happen.

If the probability is above zero, then the consequence might happen—the greater the possibility, the greater the chance of the subject consequence from happening.
