Risk Management: Concepts and Guidance
Planning Meetings: The Risk Management Plan
This new edition of "Risk Management: Concepts and Guidance" supplies a look at risk in light of current information, yet remains grounded in the history of risk practice. Taking a holistic approach, it examines risk as a blend of environmental, programmatic, and situational concerns. Supplying comprehensive coverage of risk management tools, practices, and protocols, the book presents powerful techniques that can enhance organizational risk identification, assessment, and management—all within the project and program environments.
Updated to reflect the Project Management Institute’s "A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide), Fifth Edition," this edition is an ideal resource for those seeking Project Management Professional and Risk Management Professional certification.
Emphasizing greater clarity on risk practice, this edition maintains a focus on the ability to apply "planned clairvoyance" to peer into the future. The book begins by analyzing the various systems that can be used to apply risk management. It provides a fundamental introduction to the basics associated with particular techniques, clarifying the essential concepts of risk and how they apply in projects. The second part of the book presents the specific techniques necessary to successfully implement the systems described in Part I.
The excerpt from chapter 5 focuses on the ins and outs of preparing for and running a risk management planning meeting, including necessary resources and expected outcomes.
