Masterclass 1: Joint Agency Cost Schedule Risk Uncertainty Handbook (JA CSRUH)

Date: Thursday 18 August 2022
Time: 9.00am - 5.00pm
Presenter: Ms Melissa Cyrulik, Product Manager - Software Products and Services Group of Tecolote Research, Inc., USA

Masterclass Overview
The Joint Agency Cost Schedule Risk Uncertainty Handbook (JA CSRUH) describes the best practice techniques to model cost estimating uncertainty in order to calculate and report cost risk. Cost analysts supporting the DoD and NASA look to this handbook as the authoritative document outlining the processes and procedures for performing cost and schedule risk and uncertainty analysis in support of life cycle cost estimates for major acquisition programs. This Master Class reviews the main principles of the handbook and introduces techniques for identifying sources of uncertainty, collecting uncertainty data, distribution guidelines, applying uncertainty to models, avoiding duplication of uncertainty, and analyzing and reporting uncertainty simulation results. This session will enable cost estimators to capture uncertainty in their next estimate and modeling project.

Masterclass 3: Integrating Agile with project controls on major projects

Date: Thursday 18 August 2022
Time: 9.00am - 5.00pm
Presenter: Mr Gordon Kranz, President of Enlightened Integrated Program Management, LLC, USA

Masterclass Overview

The pace of technology deployment is offering new opportunities and challenges for both commercial and government organizations. Commercial companies are trying to stay ahead of the competition, and government organizations adapt to the changing global economy and threats. Agile development methods are providing mechanisms to address these emergent and everchanging problems. This workshop aims to provide hands-on exposure to the use of Agile and how it integrates with project controls on a variety of scenario-based examples.

Workshop Objectives:
The workshop objectives are:

(1) Present the purpose and benefits of agile methods.
(2) Explain the mechanics of three widely used agile methods.
(3) Compare traditional development methods to Agile methods.
(4) Understand how Agile can be used for various projects that range from Enterprise SW development
and maintenance to large-scale HW and SW systems development.

As a result of the workshop, participants will be better prepared and equipped to apply project controls to Agile development programs. For example, allowing the participants to identify whether programs are using Agile effectively and understand how Agile progress is informing cost and schedule claims.

Target Audience:
The workshop is intended for people who are currently performing or assuming responsibilities related to oversight, execution, or evaluation of projects or programs, including program and project managers, technical managers, Contract Managers, and Analysts managing large complex projects.
Others who would benefit from attending this workshop include project stakeholders with oversight roles, including members of Project Steering Committees or Governance Boards.
