A project is never without risks. An unforeseen problem
or requirement can delay the whole process, causing havoc
for everyone involved. Risk management is a structured
form of risk control that unearths possible bottlenecks
early and thus ensures that a project is both better
managed and controlled. "Project Risk Management" is a
practical and concise book that outlines a tried and
tested approach that has been used successfully on a
number of large projects. The book is broken down into
two parts: Section 1 explores risk analysis and how to
control risk; Section 2 looks at putting these ideas into
practice and how risk management can be implemented in
different types of project and at different stages. The
book is written by experienced project risk managers, and
includes detailed case studies (including Euro 2000)
which are used to illustrate the theory.
