About the Presentation

Project Risk Management Planning

The evolution of project management, for this author, has focused on three areas of consideration: competency, capability, and maturity. Project management competency is represented by the skill, knowledge and experience of individual project management practitioners — project managers, project team members, and project executives, to name a few prominent participants.

Project management capability is represented by the processes, practices and tools that are used by organizations to achieve successful project outcomes. This includes the development and implementation of methodologies, the application of standards and metrics, and the creation of knowledge-based management information systems to support project management.

Project management maturity is represented by the deployment of project management capability across the organization or enterprise. It particularly includes the integration of collaborative project and business management processes, and the oversight, control and support of project management from a business perspective, as characterized by the work of a project management office (PMO) established for that purpose.

When project management capability grows and matures within the organization, the practices of project management become more aligned and even integrated with relevant business practices. That means, to a large extent, that the processes used to manage projects also represent collaborative processes that are used to manage the business.

As this occurs, process redundancy is reduced in the organization, project managers take on increased responsibility for aspects of business performance, and business managers and executives have a more direct influence and alignment with project performance in the project management environment. These points will be considered during this presentation.
