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.
