Change vs Risk Project Management

Change vs Risk Project Management

Project Management
Change versus Risk:  The quick and straightforward definitions for “Change” and “Risk” are as follows: changes are usually unexpected, and almost always unwelcome, though they need not be. More on that later. “Risks,” on the other hand, are usually identified, qualified, quantified and planned for, to some extent, within the “planned risk response” process. However, there still could be some unforeseen aspects (i.e. changes) in identified risks. Our qualification and quantification of the probability of a risk occurring, as well as their impacts, are, as we all know, estimates and not an exact science. We truly do not know how bad or good a risk will be until it appears and we address it. On the other hand, “changes,” when they occur, almost always automatically come with risks. These can…

Risk Management
Whenever I run a project management course or workshop, I always tell people that “Risk Management” is my favorite topic. Unfortunately, I usually do not have the time to explain this clearly, since risk management is just one in a series of knowledge areas critical to any project. Also, my attachment to risk management is personal, but the courses I teach are professional in nature. So why do I find Risk Management so attractive or interesting? Because 1) risk is nothing more than “uncertainty,” which is what we need to deal with on a daily basis; and 2) risk can be an opportunity (positive) as well as a threat (negative risk.) Therefore, in any given situation, we can temper the negative with the positive and, strive for a balance. To…
