About the Presentation
Product and service development programs are overrunning and failing at an ever increasing rate. A primary cause is the failure to identify cost, schedule and performance issues before they become obvious later in development, and are costly and time-consuming to address.
An extensive analysis of over 500 programs has revealed a new, radical and comprehensive approach to risk identification, greatly improving both risk identification and risk management. Program Risk ID embodies several major improvements in risk identification, creating a comprehensive, standardized, and objective risk management tool. Program Risk ID can be used on one program or a program portfolio for direct risk identification measurement and trending through time.
