Using simple or more sophisticated online tools, we have proved already (through work with other clients) that we can support you remotely with the development of a fully analysed risk register, and risk management plan. This can have a number of benefits, from reduced cost and it can reduce the lead time in organising the assessment considerably. We are also able and happy to take responsibility for the production of key outputs.

Approach – focused on the practical and on adding management value
We focus primarily on the practical side of risk assessment and management, that is identification and assessment, together with clear actions that bring positive influence on risk in a measurable and beneficial way. We can include the results of statistical analysis as part of the output but would always recommend that majority of effort is spent on identifying risk and in developing effective mitigation and contingency plans. Lastly we are always flexible in the way we work and will tailor any aspect of the process to the needs of the sponsoring organisation.
Process and Duration
For PMIS to conduct an activity like this it will need to have a formal terms of reference including a clearly defined set of outputs. The methods of risk assessment and analysis would be agreed in advance, to ensure that the sponsor and all stakeholders gain the maximum benefit and data from this exercise. As well as producing a formal assessment of risk, PMIS will always produce as a minimum written findings in summary report format, for the sponsoring organisation. Other information could be produced subject to prior agreement.
If you choose the online support option you can decide the level of support you require, allowing us to set and manage to a fixed budget. If we take responsibility for production of a fully approved deliverable, this can take between 5-10 days depending on the size of the project and the availability of key people. It is not possible to produce a professional and fit for purpose output in 2-3 days on a major project.
The main outputs would include, as a minimum:
- a statement of the individual key risks facing the project
- a fully analysed risk register
- an assessment of the financial ($) total exposure to risk on the project
- a set of actions for the project team to own going forward, including mitigation and contingency plans as appropriate
- a set of metrics to manage risk across the project going forwards
- recommendations regarding on-going management and control of the process
- and if required, a full quantitative risk analysis of either cost or schedule or both, based on Monte Carlo type methods.
