Project risk management is perhaps the least understood--and most effective--tool project managers can employ to increase the odds of project success. When implemented correctly, project risk management not only boosts the probability of success, but it also alleviates anxiety and offers a higher degree of predictability. Over the last decade, project risk management has become the backbone of organizations, which successfully deliver projects, and in the current period, it is essential to the success of a project. This paper covers the theoretical as well as practical aspects of risk management methodologies. It demonstrates how to (a) develop a risk management plan; (b) identify risks; (c) prioritize risks; (d) develop risk responses; and (e) monitor and control risks on an on-going basis. The paper also shows how to develop a communication strategy to clearly and quickly articulate the project risk picture at various points in time to gain upper management support. Examples from real projects clarify concepts and illustrate the best practices.

The first edition of the Code of Practice for Project Management for Construction and Development, published in 1992, was groundbreaking in many ways. Now in its fifth edition, prepared by a multi-institute task force coordinated by the CIOB and including representatives from RICS, RIBA, ICE, APM and CIC, it continues to be the authoritative guide and reference to the principles and practice of project management in construction and development. Good project management in construction relies on balancing the key constraints of time, quality and cost in the context of building functionality and the requirements for sustainability within the built environment. Thoroughly updated and restructured to reflect the challenges that the industry faces today, this edition continues to drive forward the practice of construction project management. The principles of strategic planning, detailed programming and monitoring, resource allocation and effective risk management, widely used on projects of all sizes and complexity, are all fully covered. The integration of Building Information Modelling at each stage of the project life is a feature of this edition. In addition, the impact of trends and developments such as the internationalisation of construction projects and the drive for sustainability are discussed in context. Code of Practice will be of particular value to clients, project management professionals and students of construction, as well as to the wider construction and development industries. Much of the information will also be relevant to project management professionals operating in other commercial spheres.
