About the Book
Projects--especially complex ones--are inherently risky. Between time constraints, technical challenges, and resource issues, things can easily go wrong--making the identification of potential risks an essential component of every project manager's job.
Fully updated and consistent with the Risk Management Professional (RMP) certification and the "Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge" (PMBOK(R)), "Identifying and Managing Project Risk" remains the definitive resource for project managers seeking to guard against failure. Drawing on real-world situations and hundreds of examples, the book outlines the risk management process and provides proven methods for project risk planning. Readers will learn how to use high-level risk assessment tools, implement a system for monitoring and controlling projects, and properly document every consideration. Analyzing aspects such as project scope, available resources, and scheduling, the third edition also offers fresh guidance on program risk management, qualitative and quantitative risk analysis, simulation and modeling, and significant "non-project" risks. This practical book will help readers eliminate surprises and keep projects on track.

Preregistration, reading the book before the meeting, and bringing a copy (e-book okay) of the book to the meeting is required.
You can purchase Identifying and Managing Project Risk: Essential Tools for Failure-Proofing Your Project through Amazon.
Based on the amount of time you will spend in self-directed study of negotiation – we estimate up to six hours of reading, which converts to up to 6 PDUs for qualified PMPs who are under the 30 PDU limit for their current three year certification cycle. Please note that these PDUs will need to be reported as Self-Directed Learning. For full details on PDU reporting refer to the PMP Handbook.
About the Monthly Book Club
The Monthly Book Club is a forum for talking about books that touch on the widely varied challenges of project and program management. There is no Book Club membership. Anyone can sign up to join our conversations. There are just three key requirements: preregistration, reading the book before the meeting, and bringing a copy of the book to the meeting. Note that you should sign up early as we limit the discussion to fifteen people so that everyone has a chance to share their opinion.
Come to the Book Club with an open mind and prepare to have your understanding adjusted as you hear about the book through the voices of your professional peers.
Studying project management and related topics through books is recognized and rewarded by PMI in PDUs, roughly on the basis of one hour of study equals one PDU. Continued certification as a PMP requires the accumulation of these valuable credits and we are pleased to offer this opportunity to obtain both the important training and the educational credit associated with it.
