From statistics, only 20% of projects are named as successful with respect to all pre-defined objectives met. Project Managers blame on unexpected things happened like prices change, staff turnover, complicated processes or even policy changes.

How come such complaints arise after problems occur? It is no doubt that risks should be planned, not just be managed. People become wiser after disaster but may not learn from mistakes. Risk management is an important module in all project management methodology, which appears in early stage — “Planning”. With proper Risk Management Plan, Project Plan can be implemented in more controlled manner.

Risk Management is a system process of identifying, analyzing and responding to project risks. It includes maximizing the probability and impact of positive events and minimizing the probability and impact of adverse events to project objectives.

A full-scale risk management plan will cover following major processes:

  • Plan Risk Management
  • Identify Risks
  • Perform Qualitative Analysis
  • Perform Quantitative Analysis
  • Plan Risk Responses
  • Monitor and Control Risk Responses

These processes interact with each other and with processes in the other Knowledge Areas. When proper risk management plan is in place, risks can be avoided, mitigated or transferred.

Benefits of implementing Risk Management can be summarized below:

  • More information is gathered => increase chance of project success
  • Discover unknown => more in control
  • Project objectives are verified => better communication
  • Know what may happen => take early actions rather than ‘panic’
  • Cancels poor projects
