24th Annual Conference – Making Project Risk Management Work


This year’s Annual Conference considered how risk management is applied in practice on major projects. Presentations included the results of a survey entitled ‘Project Risk Management Practice in MPA member organisations’ and case studies of lessons learned in major civil engineering and information technology projects in both the public and private sectors. The presentations were followed by group discussions on ways of building risk considerations into project decision making.
The keynote speech was delivered by Dr Martin Barnes, immediate past Executive Director of MPA,who referred to some of the conclusions he had reached during his career about the value and importance of risk management as an integral part of project management.
