Identifying and Managing Project Risk, Third Edition
Essential Tools for Failure-Proofing Your Project
By Tom Kendrick
Publisher: AMACOM
Final Release Date: March 2015
Pages: 400

Projects—especially complex ones—are inherently risky. Between time constraints, technical challenges, and resource issues, things can easily go wrong—making the identification of potential risks an essential component of every project manager's job.

Fully updated and consistent with the Risk Management Professional (RMP) certification and the Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK®), Identifying and Managing Project Risk remains the definitive resource for project managers seeking to guard against failure.

Drawing on real-world situations and hundreds of examples, the book outlines the risk management process and provides proven methods for project risk planning. Readers will learn how to use high-level risk assessment tools, implement a system for monitoring and controlling projects, and properly document every consideration. Analyzing aspects such as project scope, available resources, and scheduling, the third edition also offers fresh guidance on program risk management, qualitative and quantitative risk analysis, simulation and modeling, and significant "non-project" risks.

This practical book will help readers eliminate surprises and keep projects on track.

Comments about oreilly Identifying and Managing Project Risk, Third Edition:

I usually find project management and risk management very interesting, still I found most of this book to be dull and uninspiring to read.

Most of the book is based on statistical data. This provides a wealth of information, and it is data that I might want to refer to later. However, I find the presentation of the statistical data in this book to be dull to read.

Other books I have read on project management have used examples to explain the ideas in a way that is enjoyable to read. I missed that in this book.
