Les risques peuvent avoir des impacts négatifs sur les objectifs des projets tels que le retard, le surcoût, la diminution des aspects de qualité et de sécurité. Les projets complexes sont affectés par de nombreux risques et opportunités en raison de leur plan organisationnel complexe avec un grand nombre de parties prenantes, une planification complexe avec un long cycle de vie, une gestion complexe des ressources, des problèmes techniques et des facteurs environnementaux. Ce type de projet peut également présenter une importance stratégique pour les parties prenantes. Il est essentiel d'identifier et d'analyser les risques et les opportunités tout au long du cycle de vie du projet et d'élaborer des plans d’action afin de réduire les effets négatifs des risques. Dans cette étude, nous proposons un processus formalisé et systématique de management des risques pour les projets complexes et stratégiques.
VUCA , an acronym that stands for Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity, has become a buzzword in management and business circles. It has added a new dimension to management principles and practice this requires a fresh approach to adapt to the new situations that are emerging in business and industry. Over the years project management standards have been adapting to industry practices and through its revisions introducing new topics and areas of knowledge. The objective of the standards has been to present information that is relevant and valid for today's operations. Various project management standards have been studied to assess if the four parameters of VUCA have been included and discussed and if they are adequate for the practising project manager to function effectively.
