Global Risk Assessment and Strategic Planning: An introduction and facilitatorís guide to the GRASP Methodology

Description

Global Risk Assessment and Strategic Planning†is a combined risk-based methodology for management planning and decision making in projects. GRASP uses multi-stakeholder perspectives to enlarge the project teamís knowledge base and increase awareness of the circumstances in which the project can make real progress.

The book provides a practical, infinitely scalable process for managing project risk, improving project delivery planning and executing stakeholder engagement programmes; all intended to increase the likelihood of better project outcomes. As a 'how-to' manual, the book combines user-friendly information with examples that allow a practitioner to use the GRASP methodology in an efficient and effective manner.

Global Risk Assessment and Strategic Planning:

ē delivers a flexible, methodological approach to create a richer picture of a project for all parties operating at
any level in the participating organisation
ē helps improve managersí ability to plan, assess and understand their projects and the risks inherent in them
ē provides managers with a more informed view of their project, which in turn helps them to make more
informed decisions
ē contributes to a managerís toolkit by being an essential and practical everyday facilitation aid.

Global Risk Assessment and Strategic Planning has been designed to promote a culture of openness and positive attitudes to risk, stakeholder engagement and problem solving within projects. The methodology has been developed over several years and is in regular use by a number of forward-looking project sponsors and project management teams.
