The KnowRisk® Products


What is KnowRisk?

knowriskKnowRisk® is a product family of Project Risk Management tools, developed and offered by ProjectExperts. KnowRisk is oriented to Project Risk, and should not be confused with 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, with special Response and Strategy recommendations for the risks that are unique to 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 are not identified soon enough to avoid them. Some are out of the immediate team’s control, but well within the control of customers or managers.

Part of our Facilitated RIP Sessions

The KnowRisk process has been available since 1988 through our Rapid Initial Planning (RIP) consulting services. In a RIP session, we work with Project Executives, Customers, Managers and key team members to produce all or most (depending on the session objectives) of a complete PM Plan. For example, our RIP Initiation produces early estimates, Risk assessment, Initiative Staging, with Initial Schedules and Costs, and a preliminary PM Plan.

Responding to customer requests, KnowRisk is available either as a stand-alone product or service. Whether you license KnowRisk for your own project, administer it through your Project Management Office, or integrate it into your Enterprise repeatable processes, you’ll 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!
