Risk Management and the PMO


Most project managers understand the basics of managing project-level risks, using the tried-and-true risk matrix that prioritizes risks according to probability and impact, so that we can then work risk management strategies. If this is done well on each project, it might be tempting to conclude that our risk management job is done. But is it? Are we leaving ourselves open to broader risk exposure by looking at each project on its own?
