Forensic Planning: Using Project Management to Address Claims, Disputes and Litigations

In this week's episode, Ricardo talks about Forensic Planning, explaining that this is an area of ​​Project Management widely used for claims, litigation, and lawsuits.

Often in capital projects or large projects, delays and other types of disruption happen when parties disagree on which side is responsible.

This type of work attempts to assess and support the parties in the solution and identify the root cause of the problem. For example, analyzing whether that delay could be avoided or not or whether the cost overrun can be repaired by one of the parties or not.

Ricardo explains that the traditional concept of Gantt chart or critical path analysis is being used in courtrooms, moderation panels, and measurements to address this type of dispute between stakeholders through forensic planning.

He also ends with a challenge. Why can't other types of projects benefit from this type of approach?
