Every business is required to manage and control risks. Risk control starts with the business organization. Risk is also a part of every portfolio, program and project. Project risk is a small part of the overall challenge of managing business risks. This is why business risk must be addressed for the organization before risk can be addressed for portfolios, programs and projects. Controlling risk is a critical skill for every project manager.
