PM Insight Sunnyvale Virtual Meeting - Risk Management, Not Risky Management
PM Insight-Sunnyvale Virtual Meeting:
Risk Management, Not Risky Management
Most projects have a budget and schedule, yet many are delivered late and over budget. Why? The primary reason is risks become issues. Therefore, if we want to improve our project success rate, we can prioritize project risk management practices. However, the problem we face is many risk management techniques are overly complicated, with some requiring advanced statistics. The result is practitioners often neglect project risk management, leading to less-than-successful project outcomes. The key to project success is risk management, not risky management.
Dr Skulmoski presents a simple risk management framework that can immediately be used on most projects, most of the time. Greg will also share a technique to quickly develop cost and duration estimates in conditions of uncertainty, like a cybersecurity-threatened business environment with a race toward digital transformation or a transition to post-quantum cryptography. Risk management is a critical success factor outlined in Greg’s book Shields Up: A Project Management Approach to Cybersecurity (2022).
- Identify high-impact risks early in the project
- Develop duration and cost estimates that are risk-informed
- Learn how to significantly reduce tail-end complexity in digital transformation and other technology projects
- Learn a new risk identification technique you can immediately use on your projects
