Manging Project Risk


Authored by Harold Ainsworth


Managing Project Risk is designed to assist senior managers who exercise  project oversight of investments. By understanding risk management practices, you can ensure project investments are value driven to achieve the planned results.

Risk management is not about avoiding risk but rather about fully understanding its nature and planning appropriate responses so that the organization can undertake and effectively manage challenging ventures in order to realize benefits from those projects.

Managing project risk needs to operate well not only at the project or program level, but also in Governance forums where key decisions are required about risk management practices to support Project Managers and their teams.

The book fully explores traditional risk management including a basic quantitative approach. The author Ainsworth photoemphasizes certain types of risks that are not amenable to standardized approaches. These require greater levels of dialogue and collaboration among senior management to develop a suitable risk management plan.

The benefits and limitations of risk management are covered along with suggestions for how organizations can move beyond a “tick the box” approach to a more considered, collaborative and mature level of risk management for project investments.

This is a book you will want to revisit often as you navigate a changing world.

In a dynamic world where project and program investments are increasingly prevalent, the rate of investment failure is also dramatically increasing.

Harold’s concise take on risk management is both value-driven and practical, making it a great resource for both leaders and manager who seek to maximize the success of their most critical initiatives.
