  • Risk management in information technology projects

    There are several studies on managing risks in information technology (IT) projects. Most of the studies identify and prioritise risks through empirical research in order to suggest mitigating measures. Although they are important to clients for future projects, these studies fail to provide any framework for risk management from IT developers' perspective. Although a few studies introduced a ...

  • Dynamic analysis of project risk

    This paper first proposes an approach to risk dynamics analysis during the project's early phase in order to improve the identification and implementation of suitable response actions. Secondly, an approach is proposed to monitor and control the global project risk during the entire project life-cycle by defining a project risk baseline. Both approaches have been applied to a very ambitious ...

  • Risk management versus incentives

    Portfolio theory indicates that risk management should take place at the group level. Hedging at the project level or in the individual business areas may lead to suboptimal results. However, the efficiency of a profit centre depends on its management's being able to influence factors that are crucial to the unit's financial results. Price hedging could be one such factor. In the wider ...

  • Total cost management of interdependent projects

    This paper develops a methodology based on Portfolio Analysis to select a configuration of interdependent projects. Several methodologies were developed to help selection of investment projects. These methodologies do not consider inter-project dependency. The decision to minimise some kind of costs in a project may have as consequence a very large cost for the whole system. This is particularly ...
