INTRODUCTION TO RISK MANAGEMENT

Why do projects fail?

S
implistically, a project fails when it over-runs, over-spends or under-performs. In other
words, it fails when the plan is not met. There are only two reasons why the plan is not
met:

• The plan is too optimistic - an over-optimistic plan is very common, and can arise out of
shoe-horning and cramming in order to meet pre-determined targets. Under-bidding, scale-
to-fit, and political spin are also common causes.
• Things happen, that means the plan is exceeded - scope creep, insufficient resources,
unanticipated work and events are some
causes of this.
Parallelism in projects further
exaggerates optimism in estimates,
because parallel tasks compound
risk. This phenomenon is called “merge
bias” or “nodal bias”. It is especially
present when the project is deliberately
scheduled with minimal float (a common
planning technique).

Even when there is no significant


optimism, or significant parallelism to
compound it, the most likely outcome of the project is rarely the scenario based on the most
likely estimates. Using the most likely estimates in a plan usually gives a projected outcome
that has a very low level of confidence. This project will be delayed if either one of these
parallel tasks are delayed. The more parallelism there is, the more ways the project can slip.
A more realistic plan is one that recognizes uncertainty and risk. It simply needs to express
estimates as ranges:
• As well as the deterministic (single-point) estimate, use ranges (two- or three-point
estimates) to express uncertainty and risk
• Use the best knowledge available to the team. Reflect lack of knowledge with wide
ranges.
• You can give these range-estimates on any element of the project, including
durations, costs, resource rates, resource allocations, and even calendars.
• You can also add specific risk events.

3
The projected outcomes also become ranges when parameters in a project have ranges (two
or three-point estimates, with some specific risk events),. For example the project finish date
is no longer a single date, but is now a range, with a confidence level too!!

BENEFITS OF RISK ASSESSMENT

Project contingency can make or break a project. Having too much contingency is
uncompetitive; having too little contingency increases the chance of failure.
Risk assessment (allowing uncertainty on estimates) gives confidences on outcome targets,
allowing contingency to be set with a preferred level of risk. Ultimately risk assessment helps
you bid, negotiate and win the contract at the price.
Contingency is often set at task level – it is common to add some contingency to every
estimate. It may even be a fixed amount – 10% for example. However, it is much better to set
contingency at project level instead – in other words, use the ranges on the task estimates to
understand what contingency should be set for the project as a whole.
Setting contingency at project level reflects the reality that some tasks may be delayed while
others may not, or may even be early: “it could rain anywhere, but it’s unlikely to rain
everywhere – and we don’t know where it will rain”.
Considering project cost and schedule together is also rare – often cost and schedules are
separate disciplines within the team. A risk assessment workshop can bring the disciplines
together.
These are all compelling reasons to use risk assessment on a project. It allows contracts to
be negotiated, bids to be submitted at the right price, and sensitivity to be understood (as
discussed in the previous section).
Risk response (mitigation) strategies can be expressed too !!

Where we are now where we can be Cost of getting there

Understanding the effects of risk
assessment on finish dates of a
Project:

The proposed risk response appears to


save around two months on the whole
project.

Understanding the effects of risk


assessment on Cost of a Project:

Cost-benefit analysis can be used to


compare response strategies and
understand how effectively the money
would be spent. When the cost of
implementing the response is included
in the comparison, it can show the net
effect of the response on the project
cost. The response can then be judged
in terms of whether its net effect is to
increase cost, and whether that
increase can be justified by the time it
saves.

PERTMASTER’s PLANNING TOOLS

4.1 Creating a project plan


Let as presume our project plan is to be prepared from the beginning. So we start from
square one by first building a project plan.

Note: If you already have a project plan ready (using other planning tools) we can import that too! And
get started; however let us learn how to build project plans using PERTMASTER’s tools. Lessons on
importing a pre-build plan from other planning tools are covered in the latter part of this manual.

Our assignment now is to initiate a project. This project will be identified as “Office Building
Addition”. Our first aim would be to make a detailed plan of this project so that we can
identify all small & big risks in the next step

Exercise 1:

1. Click on File / New

4.2 Deliverables of Work (Work Breakdown Structure)

Now that we have initiated the ‘Office building Addition’ project, we need to split this into
possible deliverables i.e. we need to define the “Work Breakdown Structure”.

Exercise 2:
Create the Work Breakdown Structure as given in the Table below. You may follow
instructions from your tutor.

5.2 Task Resource Risk


The cost of certain resources are not always known quantities, hence risk distribution of
such resources needs to
be modeled.

1. Click on Risk

25
2. Click on “Risk On for sub resource”

Sometimes the quantity of a material resource required may be uncertain. We need to model
such cases too!

26
5.3 Task Existence Risk
Imagine a situation wherein there are 75 % chances that during excavation ground water
may be found.

27
Rules for Task Existence:
1. If the Keep Links to other tasks option is selected and the task does not exist then its duration is
set to zero & any resource requirements are set to zero. The effect of its duration & resources on
the project is therefore removed.
2. If the Remove Links to other tasks option is selected and the task does not exist then it is ignored –
Ignoring a task removes the task & all preceding & succeeding links. (This may arouse a situation
wherein there may be open ends in project in a particular iteration).

28
5.4 Probabilistic Branching
Probabilistic branching allows you to model the risk of outcomes occurring in a project. It is
used when the outcomes are exclusive, i.e. only one of the many outcomes occurs

Imagine a situation wherein there are chances that archaeological remains may be found
while excavating. In such case the following probable outcomes are probable:

a. Archaeological remains found that needs expert removal (50% chance; duration= 10d;
cost= Rs 5000)

b. Archaeological remains found which do not need expert removal (50% chance; duration=
0d; cost= Rs. 0)

Now we need to modify the existing plan as shown below.

29
Rules for Probabilistic branching:
1. Succeeding tasks can have a probability of 100%.
2. When there are two or more succeeding tasks with less than 100% probability, all of those
probabilities must add up to 100%.
3. If there is only one task with a probability less than 100%, then it can have any probability.
4. A task that has more than one predecessor has to have a probability of 100% (such tasks are
shown with an * mark on the ‘Risks-Probabilistic Branch’ tab.

30
5.5 Probabilistic Links
Probabilistic links allow you to model the probability of a link between two tasks existing or
not existing.

Select the task “Structure Complete”. Add the probabilistic link risk to its predecessors as
shown below.

Rules for Probabilistic Links:

1. Preceding links can have a probability of 100%.


2. When there are two or more preceding links with less than 100% probability, all of those
probabilities must add up to 100%. (If one happens the others don’t)

3. If there is only one link with a probability less than 100%, then it can have any probability

You can view the histograms for various parameters of the project or even selected tasks, viz., Durations,
Start Dates, Finish Dates, Float, Cost, etc.

6.2 Tornado Graphs
Tornado graphs ar used to display & rank Sensitivity, Schedule Sensivity Index, Criticality &
Cruciality values.

6.3 Scatter Plot
The scatter plot shows the relationship between two outputs of a risk analysis. Each point on
the scatter plot represents two values for one iteration of the risk analysis. The total number
of points is equal to the number of iterations that were run in the risk analysis.
The example below shows the relationship between the time and cost of the plan. In this
