Effective risk management allows project management to identify the project’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and most importantly any threats that can impact the project.
Project management must always plan for unexpected events and have contingency plans in place in the event bad things happen. To ensure any project’s success, the strategy for defining how risks will be handled must be pre-planned and ready to implement at a moment’s notice.
Risk management is a project component that is often forgotten or ignored by project managers who substitute dreams of sugarplums dancing in their heads for the harsh realities of the tough world of managing projects. Risk is real and is lurking around every corner of the project. Effective and successful project managers recognize that fact and that achieving a project’s end state depends on planning, preparation, results, and evaluation. Resources available are limited – therefore a focused response to Risk Management is needed.
