Ask The Expert - Bringing A Risk Perspective To Contract Management

Published: 07 Mar 2014 Average Rating: 2.8 / 5 Print

Author: Dr David Hillson, The Risk Doctor

Few would disagree that contracts are tools for managing risk, yet how effective are they?

In many organizations, fundamental questions about risk may not be asked, or the answers are not well communicated. For example 'How much risk is too much?' is a critical decision that should inform contract management policy and practice.

In this webinar, risk expert Dr. David Hillson will share his knowledge as we discuss items that include:

Avoiding narrow perspectives of risk as 'future uncertain events'
Establishing balance between risk probability and risk consequence
Tackling frequent risk factors such as scope uncertainty and weak change management
Understanding and assessing risk culture and appetite
