Risk management is designed to mitigate, or eliminate risks throughout the lifecycle of a project. A risk management plan is put together by the project management team to minimize the risk impacts on projects. Any risk management including identifying the risks, analyzing the risks, responding to the risks, and controlling the risks and documenting them so that they would no longer ever take place or pose in any future project planning. “Project Risk Management includes the processes of conducting risk management planning, identification, analysis, response planning, and controlling risk on a project” (Project Management Institute, 2013, p. 5183). While a project planning and management is taking place for an upcoming project, a risk management and reduction plan has to also be taking place at the same time to make sure that all risk factors and backup plans are put in place and are preferably tested. Creating a mitigation plan could also help in case of a disaster recovery. Risks can include and are not limited to natural disasters and or power outages. In order to resolve all risks accordingly, one must anticipate risks before they happen. Risk management plan can help minimize the downtime, and boost the response time by implementing the right fixes in timely manner. “The process of identifying risks, assessing risks and developing strategies to manage risks is known as risk management. A risk management plan and a business impact analysis are important parts of your business continuity plan” (Queensland Government, 2015). Much of the planning for risk management will serve the business continuity plan purposes as well. There are different types of risks associated with different businesses. By identifying the risks, mitigating them, and identifying the steps it will take to resolve these risks, project management can go forward with little to no issues. Risk management plans can recover businesses from near disaster like risks.

Risk Management in my experience has been both the most painful and most rewarding endeavor in the project process.  What does Risk Management mean?  To different levels of people it means different things, for executives its probably solely tied to profits and losses, but to engineers it may be productivity and automation requirements, and for security it's intrusion prevention.

Ultimately risk management really comes down to a couple things:

1. What's the worst case scenario?

2. What's the closest I can get to achieving my project with the least detrimental impact to the company?

My personal experience has been more in the engineering aspect of the business so for me it comes down to time, cost, and efficiency.

  • Does the project increase productivity?  If no... we don't need it.  If yes, move to question #2.
  • Does the project reduce costs? If no, make a determination on HOW MUCH productivity we are getting increased.  If Yes, see question #3.
  • Do we have the resources to complete the project or would we need to hire or train additional resources? If the answer is Yes, then we certainly aren't going to reduce costs.  If the Answer is No (which is almost never the case), I'm soooo happy.
  • What are the security concerns?  If we are increasing security are we decreasing productivity?  If we are decreasing security... well... we just can't do that.

Recently I had a project where we were consolidating 7 domains down to 1.

Here was the goal:

  • Increase security - Move away from LDAP and move to LDAPS.  Move from NTLM fallback to Kerberos only.  
  • Increase hardening of workstations... additional agents, reporting, etc..


What happened is that suddenly all of these application owners started screaming, "OMG!!! How do I connect?  What's a certificate?  How do I use it?"

So we spent (still are) the next 18 months assisting application teams with how to do a simple connection, figure out what a DN (DistinguishedName) is... how to request a Certificate, how to install it via IIS, etc...

What we didn't consider (well not us but architecture), is what about the applications that were custom built and don't have the capability to quickly update and change?  Now we have dozens of them out there waiting on programmers to fix, while we have to maintain both the old and the new environments. 

Then we had other issues including email custom attributes not being pushed over correctly.  Scripts we used for migration through ADMT  weren't properly tested.  The list could go on forever.

The point being is a project that was supposed to go until April 1st, 2015 is now scheduled to end in 2017.  All of which could have been avoided with  proper planning, risk management, and requirements gathering.  That's the wild end of the spectrum.

On the opposite, I've worked with a company that did almost 2 years of planning and when I got there as a consultant they had a document with step by step processes for everything they wanted done.  They simply didn't have the resources in house to do it, so they contracted out.  I spent 3 weeks there and completed a much larger project.

So for me, Risk Management is all about understanding WHAT are the businesses needs?  WHAT are the security requirements? What is going to be effected by changes?

You have to sit down with EVERYONE.  From cyber security to the service desk to understand exactly what is needed and how you need to accomplish it.
