The Effect of IT Project Managers’ Mental Construal on IT Project Risk Management Activities

Dec 14, 2020 12:00 PM EST (UTC-5)
webinar

Prior research suggests that information technology (IT) project managers (PMs) often fail to take adequate steps to manage project risks and that this may contribute to the high failure rate associated with IT projects. In this presentation, I will discuss PMI-funded research that explores how IT PMs’ mental construal affects four key IT project risk management activities: (1) risk identification, (2) risk impact assessment, (3) risk response planning, and (4) risk response enactment. This research contributes to our understanding of IT project risk management and suggests ways for improving IT project risk management practices.

by John Ayers

The four knowledge cornerstones of project risk management are: • Project Management (how to run a project) • Earned Value Management (how to measure project performance) • Risk Management (how to identify and mitigate risks) • Subcontract Management (how to manage subcontractors) This Webinar addresses how to manage subcontracts. Many companies today subcontract out a majority of their work. As a result, the subcontract becomes a risk to the project. This Webinar focuses on how to select a subcontractor and how to monitor a subcontractor to minimize this risk. The Webinar will cover the subcontractor selection process, subcontractor planning considerations, and types of subcontractor changes. Subcontractor risk stories are presented as an example of how to avoid pitfalls.
