Book Description

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.
