A few days ago we guided you to a free webinar by Internationally acclaimed risk expert and Gower author David Hillson. On his website you have the opportunity to experience other free full-length training sessions that combine presentation slides with audio. Managing Risk in Projects is one of his latest, each lasts about an hour, and tackles a specific risk topic in detail. We think the webinars offer a great way to learn about a particular subject at your own pace and in your own time. Full details of David’s events, briefings and books can be found at his website .
David Hillson shows how two simple extensions to the standard risk process can bridge the gap between tactics and strategy, ensuring that risk management delivers benefits to the wider organisation. This free Webinar was recorded for the PMI International Development Community of Practice (PMI ID CoP) in March 2012.

David has published an array of books with Gower Publishing, focussing on risk, a full of list of titles can be found here www.gowerpublishing.com/risk-attitude.
In our everyday lives we use our debit cards, credit cards and drivers licence on a regular basis to buy things, prove our age or to show we are legal to drive. Our name is listed on all of these documents but we don’t actually need it. The only people who benefit from our names being present on these cards are identity thieves. Gower author, David Birch, explains in his seminar what needs to be done in order for us to keep our identities protected and safe.
David’s book, Digital Identity Management is available from Gower.
Matthew Leitch’s lastest survey holds some interesting findings for anyone seeking approval for a new project and program in an area of high uncertainty. Amongst his findings:
- Effect 1: Obvious higher priority activities and uncertainties tend to have been thought about more already, reducing the chance of finding further worthwhile improvements. The focus should be on changes and on activities whose importance has previously been underestimated.
- Effect 2: New ideas are more likely to lead to new improvements than ideas that have already been considered and perhaps are in use already.
Visit his website to read the full findings and the survey results.
Matthew Leitch is author of Gower Publishing’s Intelligent Internal Control and Risk Management.
