A project is never without risks. An unforeseen problem or requirement can delay the whole process, causing havoc for everyone involved.

Risk management is a structured form of risk control that unearths possible bottlenecks early and thus ensures that a project is both better managed and controlled.

Project Risk Management is a practical and concise book that outlines a tried and tested approach that has been used successfully on a number of large projects. The book is broken down into two parts:

Section 1 explores risk analysis and how to control risk

Section 2 looks at putting these ideas into practice and how risk management can be implemented in different types of project and at different stages

The book is written by experienced project risk managers and includes detailed case studies (including Euro 2000) which are used to illustrate the theory.
