Publisher Comments:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 345-347) and index.

Book News Annotation:

Explaining the basic ideas and tools of project risk management and incorporating them into a coherent framework, this book shows how to link risk identification to project planning. Basic principles are articulated and then related to a specific historical success—the construction of the Panama Canal. The book also draws from the Project Experience Risk Information Library (PERIL), a database identifying risk factors from hundreds of projects over the past decade. Kendrick has worked as a manager on engineering, IT, and networking projects. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

"There’s a good reason project risk management is one of the most vital of the nine content areas of the Project Management Body of Knowledge (TM). Important projects tend to be time constrained, pose huge technical challenges, and suffer from a lack of adequate resources. It’s no wonder that project managers are increasingly focusing their attention on risk identification.

Identifying and Managing Project Risk is a practical guide to minimizing the possibility of failure in critical projects. The book takes readers step by step through every phase of a project, showing them how to consider the possible risks involved at every point in the process. Relevant figures and diagrams support the text and illustrate key scenarios. At the end of each chapter is an analysis of how the principles just discussed applied to a supreme example of what many once considered a truly impossible project: the building of the Panama Canal.

Packed with real-world information, this book is essential reading for any project manager seeking to complete projects smoothly and successfully."
