Product description

From the Inside Flap

Extensively revised and updated, this new edition of Project Risk Management builds on the success of the original book in showing how critical an understanding of risk management is in the estimating, planning, implementation and realisation of any project, large or small.

Project Risk Management sets out the key issues and concepts involved in effective risk management in a clear and accessible way, using a methodology that is applicable to all kinds and all sizes of projects, whether requiring detailed, quantitative analysis or a rougher approach using only qualitative analysis.

Project Risk Management met the growing need for a generic methodology that employed a systemic approach to project risk management. In this new edition, the authors expand on their discussion to include the latest developments within the field, and apply risk management processes in the context of the project management task as a whole, with the view to improving overall project performance.

Emphasizing risk management rather than risk evaluation, this book has been developed to meet your practical concerns. Based on a sound conceptual foundation Project Risk Management is a clear, comprehensive guide relevant to anyone involved in managing a project.

From the Back Cover

"When first published in 1997, Chris Chapman and Stephen Ward's Project Risk Management instantly became a classic in the field, bringing risk management in a systematic manner into the mainstream for the management of projects. ?Their second edition of this seminal work is a tour de force - a comprehensive, lucid, and highly readable guide to one of the thorniest aspects of managing projects. ?Their book is a combination of leading edge scholarship coupled with strong, practical advice for project managers. ?I found useful insights on nearly every page."
—Jeffrey K. Pinto, Ph.D. Breene Professor of Management, Penn State University

"Chris Chapman and Stephen Ward are our two leading scholars in project based uncertainty management. This second edition confirms their importance to the field."
—Peter W G Morris, Professor of Project Management, University College London; Executive Director, INDECO
