Created by David Hillson and Peter Simon, ATOM Risk Management is a practical method for managing risk on projects. ATOM offers an approach for Active Threat & Opportunity Management, addressing both upside and downside risks. It is not a theoretical framework, not a set of principles, and not a standard. Project risk management with ATOM is accessible to all, simple to use, and scaleable for any project in any organisation or industry type.

ATOM is described in detail in the award winning book “Practical Project Risk Management: The ATOM Methodology” by David Hillson and Peter Simon. The book offers full “How to” guidelines for implementing ATOM on your project.

Project Management Institute Honours Authors David Hillson, PhD, PMP, PMI Fellow, and Peter Simon, PMP with the 2013 PMI David I. Cleland Project Management Literature Award

David and Peter also offer training and consultancy support for anyone wanting to implement ATOM in practice. This includes a range of training events at different levels, plus development of a tailored ATOM process for your organisation, or support in using ATOM on your project.
