  • Abstract

    It  doesn't matter what guide or model you are using for your program's risk  management process -- CMMI RSKM, the Risk Management Guide for DoD Acquisitions, PMI PMBoK, or some other -- if you don't identify the right risks,  everything else you do in risk management is just a waste of time and effort.

    In this webinar, we'll look at group processes at the work group level (development team, IPT, small project) for identifying and documenting risks. We'll discuss the principles behind the Condition-Consequence risk statement construct, showing you how to help a work group write good risk statements quickly and confidently. Finally, we'll discuss the ways in which many organizations unintentionally undermine good risk identification, turning the risk management process into a "lip-service exercise."
