The complexity of a project leads to the existence of interdependent risks, hard to anticipate and keep under control. For complex and strategic projects, it is necessary to identify and assess all the potential risks and opportunities through the whole project life-cycle, and develop action plans to mitigate, eliminate or transfer negative risks.
