He also provides guidelines on how to ensure that they are managed effectively.  The book

  • Details the concepts associated with higher level risks and how those risks can impact a company’s success.
  • Delivers a detailed examination of the risk management function for portfolio managers, program managers, and the PMO function. Examines each of these roles in detail and considers how variations in the way in which each role is implemented in an organization can impact the ability and approach to managing risk.
  • Explores the relationship between risk profiles, risk tolerance, and the project portfolio, and the factors influencing this relationship. Analyzes the cause and effect between risk events and the risk profile, and provides readers with practical tips for managing the impact.
  • Provides meaningful ways to improve the way in which organizations: analyze their risk exposures, create an overall risk profile, establish a risk tolerance based on that profile, and apply that model to their project portfolio as a whole as well as to the programs and initiatives within it.
