The discipline of project risk management is continually evolving and has matured over time. However within the literature there has been a disproportionate focus on process, techniques and statistical analysis at the expense of understanding how effective risk management is delivered. The Rules of Project Risk Management provides readers with practical insights in the form of guidelines or 'rules' to enhance effective delivery of a discipline which has been proven to directly contribute to securing a project's objectives. A series of mini case studies are included to improve comprehension of the guidelines. The structure of the book has been designed to enable project and risk personnel and students alike to quickly appreciate and assimilate those aspects of risk management that warrant close scrutiny and comprehension. Robert Chapman's advice is given with clarity and is based on very broad experience.
