Most people view risks only in terms of negative effects. However, the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK), maintained by the Project Management Institute (PMI), states that the effects of risk can be positive or negative. PMI bases its risk-management philosophy on a proactive approach, which simultaneously does the following: • Minimizes the effects of negative risks • Maximizes the effects of positive risks (Chapter 4 pg 119) Question 2 of 10 10.0 Points According to PMI, which term describes the list of identified risks?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
