David Hillson introducing Practical Project Risk Management
NEW: Third Edition
The fully-revised third edition was released in 2020, published by Berrett-Koehler, with expanded guidance on facilitating risk workshops, and applying the ATOM Methodology for programmes and portfolios. Other aspects of the methodology were also refreshed to reflect the latest best practice.
The first edition in 2007 captured David and Peter’s many years of experience in managing risk in projects, turning their expertise into a simple scaleable methodology that could be applied on any project of any size in any industry.
In 2012, David and Peter updated the book to take account of new developments in the field of project risk management, and the second edition received the 2013 PMI David Cleland PM Literature Award for the book that “most significantly advances project management knowledge, concepts and practice.”
