RICS is delighted to invite you to a CPD event run on Critical Path types and significance in Delay Analysis which will be held on the 27 August 2019 (600PM-800PM UAE time zone)

Event overview: If you ever came across an extension of time claim, or had some interest in the topic, you would have probably heard the terms prospective analysis and retrospective analysis. This event attempts to tackle the issue at the most fundamental level, being understanding what a retrospective and/or prospective analysis means when it relates to the project critical path.

Unfortunately, there is no consensus between practitioners for a universal definition of prospective and/or retrospective analysis, making it difficult to understand the mechanics of any analysis by simply looking at the label or name given to the analysis under consideration. Therefore, understanding the types of critical paths and how they affect the outcome of any delay analysis is a vital factor in gaining full and clear understanding of the difference between prospective and retrospective analysis.

Learning Outcome:

  • Refresh your understanding of the critical path and cover the main fundamentals
  • Get familiar with how to identify a project critical path
  • Understand the difference between critical path and longest path in a project
  • Learn the types of critical path and how to distinguish between them
  • Gain strong understanding of the term’s retrospective and prospective analyses as they relate to critical path
  • Understand how critical path types affect delay analyses
