take to thwart all the issues occurring at once. It is always best to have something in place and not need it versus needing something and not having it available. Circumstances are always different during the time of the event and options that may have been available previously may not be at their disposal during the crisis. There are too many unknowns to risk dealing with a disaster at the time it is happening. Reference

Hillson, D., & Simon, P. (2012). Practical project risk management: The ATOM methodology . Week 2 Response Do you personally agree that Effective Communication is the key to any successful project team because with out it things will fall apart??? Class???. I can remember from personal experience how a team for developing a website was formed and because of the lack of communication double coding were done for the same web page being requested. It became a disaster and instead of moving forward to resolve the issue everyone just wanted to blame each other. Needless to say everyone learned a lesson the hard way. Your thoughts? Professor, I agree to some extent. Things may not necessarily fall apart, but it will be done inefficiently. For example, I was just recently apart of a project that involved several divisions input. Of course, several offices did not contribute their portion in a timely manner and the divisions that did submit their responses also did work in other areas that were not required. This caused a great deal of confusion. Our legal division also made its contribution to review the project to ensure that the project was in compliance. Most of the procedures in this project were not completed in order, which caused additional work to be required/redone. Had legal made their suggestion prior to the other divisions entering their comments, the information could have been processed correctly the first time. In this case, the information had to be redistributed back to the originating offices for them to add the legal division’s suggestions to be in compliance. There was miscommunication from the start of the project in addition to a lack of urgency on the part of the divisions involved. The project was eventually completed but due to the poor communication that took place during the onset of the project, it was completed about two to three months later than anticipated. Week 3 Discussion Project Initiation" Please respond to the following: Using the “Stakeholder Analysis Template” (Appendix B2 in the Hillson and Simon text) for a company that you currently work for or you are familiar with, determine the key stakeholders and categorize them by their attitude, power, and interest dimensions. Explain how stakeholder analysis affects the overall project risk management within an organization. One of the most important aspects of managing risk for a project is to accurately define the size of the project. Determine the criteria that must be considered to perform the project sizing and create one (1) additional factor with a rationale.

    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.
