Join Terri Wagner for an in-depth discussion in this video Managing risk, part of Project Management: Preventing Scope Creep (2013).
…Risk management should be conducted from the start of the project, it should…be openly and continually discussed and…monitored all the way to project completion.…The discussion should include all members of your project team and the…documentation should be reviewed on a regular basis at your status meetings.…By being proactive in your risk…management, you'll improve your chances of handling…the risks that are triggered at their…earliest possible time, and limit the damage…they can cause.…Just like our forest service will put rangers and fire stations high above…the canopy to watch for lightning strikes or smoke during high fire season.…
You want to have scouts watching for risk warning signs on your project.…When smoke is spotted in the forest, teams…can be sent to immediately address the issue.…If they waited until the flames could be seen…before responding, much more damage would have already been done.…Likewise, on your projects,…you want to be able to respond at the earliest possible opportunity.…Remember our network installers from earlier in the course?…
