It has been estimated that a strong risk management process can decrease problems on a project by as much as 80 to 90 percent. In combination with solid project management practices, a good risk management process is critical in cutting down on surprises, or unexpected project risks. Such a process can also help with problem resolution when requirements change, because now those changes are anticipated and actions have already been reviewed and approved, avoiding the need for panic and emergency treatment.

Auditing the project throughout it’s life from the project development stage to the post implementation review and adopting a risk based approach is a proven way to maximise the opportunity to deliver the project to time, to budget and fully meet the needs of all interested parties.
