You have been assigned to a project risk team of five members. Because this is the first

time your organization has formally set up a risk team for a project, it is hoped that

your team will develop a process that can be used on all future projects. Your first team

meeting is next Monday morning. Each team member has been asked to prepare for the

meeting by developing, in as much detail as possible, an outline that describes how you

believe the team should proceed in handling project risks. Each of the team members

page 240

will hand out his or her proposed outline at the beginning of the meeting. Your outline

should include but not be limited to the following information:

a. Team objectives.

b. Process for handling risk events.

c. Team activities.

d. Team outputs.

3. Search the Web using the key words “best practices, project management.” What did

you find?

 How might this information be useful to a project manager?
