Project Risk Management – Tools and Case Studies

Projects are an increasingly popular tool for management. Given today’s fast-paced environment and the rapidly evolving external and internal parameters, project and middle managers have to constantly identify, monitor and manage risks arising from these changes. The subject of risk has become so important that companies make risk management part of their day to day operations and dedicate/appoint senior executives/resources to risk management.
