2019 Keynote: Improving on the Predictive Accuracy of P80 Dates

Do you want to reduce risk and improve the accuracy of project completion? Dr. Gui Ponce de Leon, PE, PMP, LEED AP, will reveal how to develop an early/late bounding completion distribution envelope using the Graphical Path Method (GPM®) without the risky bias for early dates inherent in CPM.
