APM Risk Specific Interest Group (SIG)

"Risk management is a process that allows individual risk
events and overall risk to be understood and managed
proactively, optimising success by minimising threats
and maximising opportunities."
APM Body of Knowledge, 6th edition, section 3.5

The Risk SIG provides a forum in which to share knowledge and ideas, develop expertise and understanding, foster ‘best practice’ and actively promote the adoption of project risk management. 

The Risk SIG holds four events per year in January, April, July and October in various locations around the country. In addition we support many local APM Branch events, other APM SIGs and conferences organised by professional bodies and organisations.

The Risk SIG is the only independent organisation in the UK specialising in project risk management.

The Risk SIG’s objectives are:

  • to enable effective management of risk;
  • to provide a forum for sharing experience and knowledge;
  • to promote best practice in development of guides;
  • to establish specific qualification standards for APM qualifications;
  • to facilitate the training and development of risk practitioners;
  • to promote links with other recognised professional bodies;
  • to provide a forum for sharing latest tools and techniques;
  • to provide an opportunity to network with people from similar/different roles/positions.

Preventing bias

Any decision made in a project environment is based on personal experience and will, inevitably, be biased to some extent.

The risk management process attempts to minimise the effects of bias and increase the chance of success through a structured process of evaluating all available options for achieving project objectives, opportunities for improvements and identifying threat reduction actions.
