Risk management is an important skill that can be applied to a wide variety of projects. In this era of downsizing consolidation, shrinking budgets, increasing technological sophistication, and shorter development times, risk management is a skill that helps project personnel prepare for the unexpected.
The text describes practices that can be used by both project management and technical practitioners including those who are unfamiliar with risk management . The reader will learn to develop, implement , and monitor plans to answer risk issues before and after problems arise. Using examples of erroneous risk management practices, the next provides insight to help understand why the practice is flawed and procedures to improve the reader's ability to detect other problematic issues. The book will also help to evaluate an existing risk management process, identify some of the shortfalls, and develop and implement needed enhancements.
The book presents more than 200 lessons learned from work for the Air Force, Army, Navy, DoD, and NASA as well as commercial projects that feature hardware-intensive and software-intensive projects.
