Risk Management, Monitoring and Project Control

Risk Management, Monitoring and Project Control
Objectives:
  • Express why Monitoring and Controlling are Important. 
  • Differentiate between Monitoring and Controlling processes 
  • Articulate the elements of Monitoring and Controlling 
  • Understand various types of Monitoring and Controlling 
  • Be able to develop a Monitoring Plan

Risk management Definition:

Risk management is the identification, evaluation, and prioritization of risks (defined in ISO 31000 as the effect of uncertainty on objectives) followed by coordinated and economical application of resources to minimize, monitor, and control the probability or impact of unfortunate events or to maximize the realization of opportunities.

The Risk Monitoring and Control process is applied to:

  • Monitor identified risks 
  • Identify new risks 
  • Ensure the proper execution of planned risk responses 
  • Evaluate the overall effectiveness of the risk management plan in reducing risk
If a risk event occurs during project execution, there is a likelihood it was identified sometime earlier, it was analyzed and an appropriate response action was planned to deal with it (captured in the Risk Register). For the most part, Risk Monitoring and Control is the process of putting into action all of the risk planning done earlier in the project life-cycle. 
It is important to understand that risk monitoring is intended to be a daily, on-going process across the entire project lifecycle. Project team members and stakeholders should be encouraged to be vigilant in looking for risk symptoms, as well as for new project risks. Newly identified risks and symptoms of previously identified risks should be communicated immediately for evaluation and/or action.

Risk Monitoring and Control Must Know Concepts 

  • The Risk Monitoring and Control process is applied to  Monitor identified risks, identify new risks, ensure proper execution of planned risk responses, and evaluate overall effectiveness of the Risk Management Plan in reducing risk. 
  • Workarounds (or workaround plans) are responses to unanticipated (surprise) risk events after they occur. Workarounds are for risk events that were not previously identified and have no advance planned response action. Workaround plans should be documented and incorporated into the Risk Register as soon as they are developed.” 
  • Risk monitoring is intended to be a daily, on-going process across the entire project life-cycle, from project start to project finish. Project team members and stakeholders should be vigilant in looking for risk symptoms, as well as for new project risks.
