What is KnowRisk?
KnowRisk® is a family of Project Risk Management tools and services, developed and offered by ProjectExperts. KnowRisk helps to manage Project Risk. While related, it is specialized beyond organizational Risk management tools.
We’ve based KnowRisk on our Project Risk Assessment and evaluation experience, a service in our Project Management consulting practices. With KnowRisk, you can identify project Risks that you might otherwise overlook, then evaluate, select and implement recommended Risk Management options.
Ways to KnowRisk
KnowRisk Lite IT is our original Microsoft Excel-based version of KnowRisk. It includes special Response and Strategy recommendations for the unique risks of Information Technology Projects. Available with instant download, KnowRisk Lite IT comes in Single-user and SixPack versions. Click here to learn more about KnowRisk Lite IT.
KnowRisk Pro, an advanced intellibase for project risk management, is currently only available as part of our KnowRisk facilitated Risk Assessment services.
Risk Management Insight
The primary purpose of Risk assessment is to improve communication among those who should manage the Risks. Some Risks are within the project manager’s control, but they are seldom identified soon enough to avoid. Some are out of the immediate team’s control, but well within the control of customers or managers.
Part of our Facilitated RIP Sessions
We’ve made our KnowRisk process available since 1988 through our Rapid Initial Planning (RIP) consulting services. In a RIP session, we work with Executives, Customers, Managers and team members to produce parts of a PM Plan. Example: our RIP Initiation produces early estimates, Risk assessment, Initiative Staging, with Schedules and Costs, and a preliminary PM Plan.
Responding to customer requests, KnowRisk is now available either as a stand-alone product or as a service. You can license KnowRisk for your own project, or administer it through your Project Management Office. Or, we can help you integrate it into your Enterprise repeatable processes. You, and your executives will be more comfortable, and more effective, when you KnowRisk.
The KnowRisk Assessment Process
The KnowRisk process brings together team members and managers to discuss project Risks. You identify the impact of those Risks, if left unmanaged. You discuss our recommended ways you can manage the Risks, to reduce their impact on your project. Then you commit to Risk avoidance, containment and management methods. If you want to significantly reduce the Risks in your project, KnowRisk supports that Risk reduction. KnowRisk is great for Project Offices or Project Management Offices, too!
