I was looking for a blog posting put out a few years ago. Sadly, I did not find it but I did find something else….
Yes, I found a blog posting called where’s my whistle? I explored the need for a systematic risk process for projects. I reflected that while this has got better, it is not that much better. …..
In the last 6 month I have seen an interesting array of clients. I discussed the need for a systematic approach to risk management and I am assured this happens. But, when I meet those on the programmes I run I find this is not the case. Risk is not seen as a key process. It is not even seen in some instances. People have described risk management as weak, not owned by the project sponsor or project board and generally not good enough.
Now the interesting thing to pint out is that the blog posting where’s my whistle was written in August 2010 almost 6½ years ago. I asked myself has the management of risks become more effective. No is how I answered.
What do you think, is risk management more effective than it used to be?
