A global pandemic made everyone’s life more dangerous. Even going to the grocery store needed some risk management. Suddenly, everyone realized how dangerous the world can be, and how life necessitates determining which risks to take and how to handle them. The majority of individuals were unprepared for the additional hazards posed by the pandemic, in part because we lack appropriate tools to help people understand risk.
It’s a lot easier to recognise troubled projects now.
Risk management strategies enable you to see which initiatives require focus and which projects are in need of care. Good risk management can give you the context for understanding a project’s performance and contribute to any health checks, peer reviews, or audits you have in place, and it can do so seamlessly with any existing Project Management Office processes you already have in place.
There aren’t as many surprises.
Leaders, on the whole, dislike surprises. Teams can better communicate about project issues in a timely manner if they take a proactive approach to risk management. Risk management strategies enable the team to identify issues much earlier.
Data of higher quality is available for decision-making.
Senior executives now have access to better quality and more useful data, allowing them to make more informed decisions based on the realities of a project.
The level of communication has improved.
Risk management that is done well lifts the conversation. It serves as a talking point for project teams and key senior stakeholders, encouraging them to talk about challenging topics and resolve any conflicts. Suppliers are also participating in the discussions, as risk responses often affect their operations.
Budgets are less reliant on guesswork.
“How much should the project’s contingency budget be? Let’s say it’s ten percent.” Contingency budgets can be more properly calculated with project risk management, as opposed to relying on the project team’s professional guesstimates.
The bar for success has been set.
The knowledge that risk is actively handled raises the bar for project success. Everyone starts work knowing that success is the expected outcome, thanks to the framework in place to deliver despite recognized risks and open communication about the project’s obstacles with senior managers.
