Risk Management is one of the most important tools available to the Project Manager to help successfully deliver complex projects. Yet, at the same time, Risk Management can be difficult to understand and if used without insight and expertise will be confusing and ineffective.
This guidance has been developed to assist staff who are managing or participating in IT and business change projects. It has been developed by the UCISA Project and Change Management Group and is based on best practice guidance provided by PRINCE2 and experience of delivering major IT and business change projects at the University of Sheffield, Lancaster University, the University of Edinburgh and Edinburgh Napier University.
The guidance is relevant for projects being managed and delivered using any methodology and is complementary to the UCISA Major Project Governance Assessment Toolkit.
