Reasons for Project Risk Management

A good starting point is to realize that any project is inherently risky, because of certain characteristics any project has. It's in the nature of a project to be risky. Good question anyway.

Reasons for Project Risk Management

Projects must produce a unique result that has never been produced in such way, so indeed the project is a risk itself.
Some projects have risk management as the core management system. Because of its nature of complexity and uncertainty, the main tasks are then those planned to reduce risks.

Is Risk Management Enough?

Risk appreciation comes first with identification. But many times I see risk registers and logs without real time mitigation. The PMO needs to be at the forefront of strategy, planning, engagement, with strong inter-connectivity with PMs.
But what happens when a change is truly transformational?
We're seeing now less and less certainty and more emerging change and complexity. Managing risk becomes managing uncertainty. It means less of project management and more change management principles to manage the future stakeholder expectation.
