Risk management is dead or dying? - Long live the management of risk
This provocatively titled webinar (the first in a series of 2) addressed the seemingly wide difference of opinion on the usefulness of risk management techniques and tools between those who develop and promote them generally risk management professionals - and project managers who are meant to use and apply them. The webinar looked to:
- Reconcile the differences between what the literature says, what the risk management profession often do and what normal project management people seem to want or need.
- Give practical tips for project management professionals on when or if to use a tool or technique, what to read into the outputs and, in some cases, how to simplify to be less theoretically correct, but more useful and easier to apply.
