Unformatted text preview: y multiplied by the consequence. Opportunity Possible positive outcome expressed by probability multiplied by the consequence. From risk management towards uncertainty management Chapman and Ward (2002) [7], defines Uncertainty, “lack of certainty, involving variability and ambiguity”. Variability, “uncertainty about the size of parameters which may result from lack of data, lack of detail, lack of definition, lack of experience and so on, which may be quantified if this is useful” Ambiguity, “the aspects of uncertainty not addressed in terms of variability” Risk, “an implication of significant uncertainty which may be upside (welcome) or downside unwelcome” The Room of Uncertainty The Precautionary strategies Uncertainty Leverage strategies Risk based strategies Dynamic Complexity Ambiguity Trustworthiness strategies Success factors Uncertainty Management Challenges and corresponding Strategies Dimensions of project complexity Size: Number of elements Structural Complexity Interdependence Interactions in complex Ways: total is more than Sum of the parts of elements Project Complexity Uncertainty in goals Uncertainty Uncertainty in methods Structural complexity compounded by uncertainty Project Organization and Contracts Project Uncertainty management Uncertainty Uncertainty management in projects is a project management Uncertainty knowledge area comprising management and control of risks and comprising opportunities in the project. Uncertainty management is divided into risk management and Uncertainty divided opportunity management. Risk management Risk A continuous process to identify, analyse and follow up uncertainties continuous which can lead to negative impacts on the project by implementing response actions to avoid risks jeopardizing a successful completion of the project. Opportunity management Opportunity A continuous process to identify, analyse and follow up uncertainties continuous which can lead to positive impacts on the project by implementing response actions to benefit from the opportunities.
