Identifying and Managing Project Risk: Essential Tools for Failure-Proofing Your Project

Tom Kendrick

Overview:

You'll Learn:

All projects are inherently risky, and especially complex ones can potentially be the downfall for even the most experienced project manager. From technical challenges to resource issues to overwhelming and unrealistic deadlines to the rarely dependable commitment of your subcontractors, any number of things can go completely wrong--any day of the week! Therefore, perhaps 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.Fully updated and consistent with the Risk Management Professional (RMP) certification and the Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK®), Identifying and Managing Project Risk remains the definitive resource for project managers seeking to be pro-active in their efforts to guard against failure and minimize unwanted surprises.
