- Fifth edition.
- Physical Description:
- 1 online resource
- Part 1. Risk processes and practices : why risk management? -- part 2. Risk management techniques.
- Taking a holistic approach, this edition examines risk as a blend of environmental, programmatic, and situational concerns. Supplying coverage of risk management tools, practices, and protocols, it presents techniques that can enhance organizational risk identification, assessment, and management-all within the project and program environments. Updated to reflect the PMI's "A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK Guide), Fifth Edition", it is an ideal resource for those seeking Project Management Professional and Risk Management Professional certification. Emphasizing greater clarity on risk practice, it maintains a focus on the ability to apply "planned clairvoyance" to peer into the future. It adopts PMI's perspective that risk is both a threat and an opportunity, and it acknowledges that any effective risk management practice must look at the potential positive events that may befall a project, as well as the negatives. --
