Free Webcast this Thursday: “Good Practices and Common Mistakes”

Join us this Thursday, December 6, 2012, for a free live webcast entitled, "Good Practices and Common Mistakes" to be presented by Dr. Huybert Groenendaal. This was one of the favorite sessions last month at the Palisade Risk Conference in Las Vegas.

Ever question if your Monte Carlo model is correct? Ever wondered how other organizations use @RISK, how to get the most value out of @RISK, and what are some of the most important best practices? Then this is the right free live webcast for you!

An increasing number of organizations are using analytical techniques such as quantitative risk analysis, value at risk (VaR), and risked NPV to help them improve decision making. However, all too often, these techniques may not be used optimally or accurately and their full value may not be realized.

During this presentation, Dr. Huybert Groenendaal will share his hands-on experience through hundreds of projects, and will discuss the following topics:

  1. Good practices for the use of @RISK and risk modeling to support decision-making
  2. Common mistakes in Monte Carlo simulation and how to prevent them.

All good practices and common mistakes will be discussed with the use of real-life risk modeling case studies and models based on EpiX consulting work.
