Abstract

This presentation discusses a project undertaken for an energy company. A process is described which assists the company to understand and manage risks involved with the project. The process involves two integrated activities; the first engages a range of stakeholders in surfacing risks and their ramifications in a causal risk map, while the second elicits expert judgement regarding uncertainties so as to understand the likelihood of risks occurring through a decision tree approach. The process has potential across a range of complex project management situations.
