Dr Dale Cooper: Chapter in Hillson, ‘The Risk Management Handbook’

Dr David Hillson (Editor), 'The Risk Management Handbook'

We have worked with Dr David Hillson (also known as the Risk Doctor) for many years.

David's new book, The Risk Management Handbook, is published by Kogan Page in June 2016.

Dr Dale Cooper contributed Chapter 5, Project, programme and portfolio risk management.

Why is project, program and portfolio risk management important?

Project risk management has been around for a long time and there are well-established processes for doing it. Despite this, projects ‘go wrong’, and sometimes they fail spectacularly. They either don't deliver the value they were intended to provide, they cost more than expected or they take longer than planned.

Risk management can’t substitute for poor project management, but good risk management can go some way to identifying and managing opportunities for generating better project outcomes and avoiding major failures.

Good risk management becomes even more important, and more useful, as projects become larger or more complex and as projects are grouped into programs and portfolios that must be managed in a coordinated manner.
