Engaging Stakeholders To Manage Risk

Project risk management covers many aspects. One of them is the development
of a risk response strategy. Developing a risk response strategy for projects is
tedious, time consuming and laborious. It takes a toll on project managers and
project team members. It consumes a lot of time to identify, analyze and
develop risk response strategies. Despite doing this, projects still fail. Why is this

Lessons Learnt from Brexit

 The results of the Brexit vote sent reverberations throughout the geopolitical and economic spectrum in the UK as well as in Europe. A referendum originally intended to silence euro sceptics within political circles turned out to be one that shook the very foundations of British politics. The Tories are leaderless, the Labour is fractured to the core and UKIP suddenly finds itself in unknown territory. Attempting to make sense of the situation will require us to confront three fundamental questions:

  1. Does the majority really know what is best for them?
  2. Do the people who govern really know what the public beliefs are?
  3. What lessons can we draw from this debacle?
