Risk Up Front
Adam Josephs & Brad Rubenstein
The ability to relentlessly identify and mitigate risk.
That is the key to high-performance project teams.
Successful projects depend more on your team’s behavior than on their project tools.
This book focuses on the fundamentals: simple structures and practices, applied with rigor. These are the tools you need to avoid the late changes that kill project schedules. Underlying all of them are four principles: accountability, transparency, integrity and commitment. Risk Up Front is designed to turn these principles into practice.
Murphy’s Law tells us, “If anything can go wrong, it will.” With Risk Up Front, even risks hiding in your team’s blind spot can be discovered and handled, before Murphy has a chance.
