'Does risk maturity drive project advantage?' presented by Val Jonas
PMSA Knowledge Event, 5th May 2017
Bryanston, Gauteng

In a recent survey by QinetiQ in the UK, projects with mature risk management practices (Level 3+ on a maturity scale of 1-4), indicated an average schedule over-run of 4%.  Whereas for projects with a low level of risk management maturity, this increases to 56%. 

Have you experienced similar results on projects and programmes you have run? 
What are the key factors to achieving risk maturity and how long does it take? 
Do the same factors apply to project management to different industries, geographical regions and management approaches? 
Does schedule overrun automatically equate to budget and/or scope problems? 
What resources are required to achieve risk maturity? 

Senior project managers and programme managers are invited to take part in this interactive debate, led by CEO of Risk Decisions Group Val Jonas and share and gain insight through this knowledge sharing. 


Val Jonas is a highly experienced risk management expert, with extensive experience of training, facilitating and implementing project, programme and strategic risk management systems for companies in a wide range of industries in the UK, Europe, the Middle East, USA, Canada and Australia. 

With 28 years experience in risk management and analysis, working with large organisations, Val has a wealth of practical experience and vision on how organisations can improve project and business performance through their risk management strategic framework and good practice. 

Val played a major part in the design and development of the leading Risk Management and Analysis software product Predict!. More recently, she has pioneered Governance and Risk Management Master Class sessions for senior management in industry and government and has been a keen and active participant in forging the interfacing of Risk and Earned Value Management, including speaking at international conferences on these topics. 

An active contributor to global risk management guidance, she has been a member of the APM PRAM guide and Risk and Earned Value working groups, US NDIA joint working group on Risk & Earned Value, UK Office of Government Commerce review panel (Management of Risk guide), PMI Global Performance Management Advisory Committee and PMI Risk Practice Standard chapter coordinator.
