Abstract

The topics in this document are intended to provide a framework for identifying risks and managing them so that they have little or no impact on a project.

While all parties are interested in identifying factors that could prevent a project from being successful, there is often a lack of pre-project effort to identify those factors that “might happen” and derail the project; instead, many projects are conducted on the basis of “we’ll have enough time during the project to deal with anything that might occur.”

This document gives practical examples of risks across a broad spectrum of activities from International projects and programs to local endeavors.
