Understanding and managing risk attitude

Risk management is recognised as an essential contributor to business and project success, since it focuses on addressing uncertainties in a proactive manner in order to minimise threats, maximise opportunities and optimise achievement of objectives. Although there is wide convergence and international consensus on the necessary elements for a risk management process, and this is supported by a growing range of capable tools and techniques, an accepted body of knowledge, an academic and research base and wide experience of practical implementation across many industries - still risk management fails to meet expectations in practice. Like so much else within the project and programme disciplines, risk management is dependent on people.
