The most essential component of every project manager’s job is the ability to identify potential risks before they cause unnecessary headaches and turmoil all around.
All projects are inherently risky, and complex ones can potentially be the downfall for even the most experienced project manager. From technical challenges and resource issues to unrealistic deadlines and problems with your subcontractors, any number of things can go wrong.
Fully updated, consistent with PMI® standards, and addressing “VUCA” (Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, and Ambiguity—the now-common business and project management acronym), this book remains the definitive resource for project managers seeking to be proactive in their efforts to guard against failure and minimize unwanted surprises.
Identifying and Managing Project Risk draws on real-world situations and hundreds of risk examples to show you how to:
Thoroughly discover and document risks
Use risk assessment techniques effectively
Implement a system for monitoring and controlling projects
Personalize proven methods for project risk management on any type of project
Complete with fresh guidance on program risk management, qualitative and quantitative risk analysis, simulation and modeling, and significant “non-project” risks, this one-stop indispensable resource is what every project manager needs to avoid chaos and keep their projects on track.
