The Essentials of Managing Risk for Projects and Programmes is an indispensable, practical guide to the steps that lead to success in managing risk.

Risk management is particularly important for projects and programmes, since they all carry varying degrees of risk. The combination of uniqueness, constraints, assumptions, stakeholder expectations, changing environment, and human behaviour all conspire to make projects and programmes risky ventures. Rather than presenting new theories or techniques or tools, John Bartlett offers down-to-earth guidelines and proven methods to respond to risk appropriately.

Pick up and use this concise, intensely practical guide to develop a shared understanding, shared language and shared purpose across project managers, programme managers, sponsors, risk managers, project and programme board members and associated stakeholders in all your projects and programmes.

About the Series

The Essentials of Project and Programme Management

Over the last fifteen years projects and programmes have become part of the everyday activities of organizations large and small. Understanding the essentials of how to plan projects, manage programmes or handle risk represents knowledge and skills that have moved beyond the purview of specialist project managers into the world of the generalists. Books in the Essentials of Projects and Programmes Series are written for project sponsors, project team members, project owners, new project managers and others who work on the periphery of projects or are drawn into project teams on a temporary basis. The Series is characterised by very readable, concise and applied books that provide an essential grounding in the context, skills and behaviours associated with successful project working.
