Project Management | Due Tuesday 5.3 | 11:30 PM

Please see details attached

Risk is inherent to every project. Some risks are more likely to occur than others, and some will have a greater impact to the project if realized. Although you cannot account for every risk, a thorough risk analysis and assessment can help minimize the liabilities of the project and ensure that your projects are successful.

Refer to either Case 7.1 Alaska Fly-Fishing Expedition, 7.2 Silver Fiddle Construction, 7.3 Trans LAN Project, and 7.4 XSU Spring Concert of your text. Each of these cases presents you with a project scope statement for a fictional project. You are to pick 1 of these cases on which to perform a risk analysis. After picking a case of your choice, you should address the following:

  • Summarize the project.
  • Discuss how the risk management process will be applied.
  • Identify potential risks associated with this project (you must come up with at least 5 different risks).
  • Use a risk assessment form to analyze identified risks.
  • Develop a risk response matrix to outline how you would deal with each of the risks.

Risk is inherent to every project. Some risks are more likely to occur than others, and some will have a greater impact to the project if realized. Although you cannot account for every risk, a thorough risk analysis and assessment can help minimize the liabilities of the project and ensure that your projects are successful.

Refer to either Case 7.1 Alaska Fly-Fishing Expedition, 7.2 Silver Fiddle Construction, 7.3 Trans LAN Project, and 7.4 XSU Spring Concert of your text. Each of these cases presents you with a project scope statement for a fictional project. You are to pick 1 of these cases on which to perform a risk analysis. After picking a case of your choice, you should address the following:

· Summarize the project.

· Discuss how the risk management process will be applied.

· Identify potential risks associated with this project (you must come up with at least 5 different risks).

· Use a risk assessment form to analyze identified risks.

· Develop a risk response matrix to outline how you would deal with each of the risks.

In conducting the risk assessment and developing the risk response matrix, you can either develop the risk assessment form and the risk response matrix yourself, you can use the templates provided in your text, or you can use the templates that are embedded in the assignment template for this IP. Your submission should be 5 pages in length. Be sure to cite your sources using APA; include your references and in-text citations.

Submitting your assignment in APA format means, at a minimum, you will need the following:

· Title page: The title should be in all capitals.

· Length: 5 pages minimum

· Body: This begins on the page following the title page and abstract page and must be double-spaced (be careful not to triple- or quadruple-space between paragraphs). The typeface should be 12-pt. Times Roman or 12-pt. Courier in regular black type. Do not use color, bold type, or italics, except as required for APA-level headings and references. The deliverable length of the body of your paper for this assignment is 5 pages. In-body academic citations to support your decisions and analysis are required. A variety of academic sources is encouraged.

· Reference page: References that align with your in-body academic sources are listed on the final page of your paper. The references must be in APA format using appropriate spacing, hanging indent, italics, and uppercase and lowercase usage as appropriate for the type of resource used. Remember, the Reference page is not a bibliography but a further listing of the abbreviated in-body citations used in the paper. Every referenced item must have a corresponding in-body citation.

Please submit your assignment.
