Project Due Diligence – how to avoid project ‘show stoppers’
Reliance on the Risk Management Standard (ISO 31000) will provide insight into the most likely project risk outcomes. But it is ineffective for rare, high consequence threats and vulnerabilities (the potential ‘project show stoppers’). The reason is simple; the Standard is risk based, not criticality based. This presentation will explore this issue and present an often used and well tested due diligence process that deals effectively with this concern.
