Risk Management Case Study

October 20 2011

A risk management case study is a concrete path to understanding the problems risks can inflict on your project. It will also help you understand the nature of risks and the possible mitigation techniques you can deploy to minimize their negative impact on your project.


To conduct a risk management case study is not always a simple thing to do. Each industry in business has risks associated with it that are common. There are also many risks that are only occurring in specific ones that are unique to each industry. There are also specific risks associated with regions of the world in which the plants operate and regions of a country as well.


All of this must be taken into account when you undertake a risk management case study for the purpose of applying the knowledge you obtain to your unique circumstances. There are also other considerations you must keep in mind when you conduct a study like this, the time frame in which your case occurred in.


The economic conditi0ons of the region and the world must be taken in to account when you are involved in a risk management case study. As the world’s economy changes, so do the risks and their level of impact on projects. As resources become more scares or abundant, the monetary costs of including them will change along with their availability.


Transportation costs is another things that has to be looked at in a risk management case study and the price of oil at the time the project you are studying as compared to its present day costs. During the 1970’s oil embargo of the US, many US firms did not anticipate this sudden rise in fuel and transportation costs. This had a negative effect on the success rate of projects across the nation.


There are many factors that must be considered when undertaking a risk management case study. The information may be applicable under certain circumstances. One thing most participants will walk away with is the understanding that risks and their threat levels will change over time. They will also understand the vital importance of having a well thought out risk management plan in place to help with their negative impacting of your projects.
