Delft, Netherlands (PressExposure) July 01, 2009 -- Projects that get out of control occur on a regular basis. A main cause of this problem is the lack of proper project risk management. Mantaba, specialized in project risk management, has written a practical handbook that teaches project managers how to cope with the risks they encounter and make their project a success.
Lack of risk management causes project failure The experience of Mantaba has shown that managing project risks professionally is a very profitable activity. It helps to improve margins by lowering costs and increasing revenues by focusing on project risks. However, most organizations manage their risk implicitly at best. This results in underperformance of projects. Mantaba has captured its knowledge in a practical handbook that informs and challenges project managers to professionalize risk management. The Dutch version of the book has helped hundreds of project managers to improve their projects in industries ranging from banking to the construction industry.
