Risk Management for Project Managers: Concepts and Practices

Description | Details

Reviews for the newest volume in The Technical Manager’s Survival Guides book series.

“Good read. This book is a template for managing complex businesses and contains information that every Asset Manager should know. Highly recommended.”

--James Willey, P.E., Vice President, Pearl Energy Philippines Operating, Inc.

“Uncertainty, or risk, is an essential part of life so that thoughtful action can influence the success or failure of endeavours. This is nowhere more apparent than in projects, where poor risk management often leads to failure. Goncalves and Heda’s new book makes a valuable contribution to the project risk management literature, highlighting the need to systematically and practically manage risks, and gives valuable best-practice advice on how this can be done effectively and efficiently. It is a concise, easy read for non-technical managers who will find it full of practical information.”

--Richard Whitfield PhD, President, East-West Institute for Advanced Studies, Macau, China

“Marcus’s new guide to risk management provides pragmatic advice that project managers can use to help them frame risks, use that knowledge to retain control of their projects and get their project completed with a minimum number of unpleasant surprises. An excellent book that all project managers should keep on their book shelf.”

--Rick Welch, Senior Vice President of Services, Demandware Corporation, Burlington, MA, USA
