In today’s competitive environment, no one can afford to take risks for granted – whether organizational, financial, technical, contractual, environmental or otherwise – and allow them to turn into a real problems that can affect the company’s overall performance. Furthermore, every business should leverage and strategically capitalize on opportunities that present themselves.

In this context, it is important to realize that the management of risks and opportunities creates substantial added value, allowing businesses to protect themselves and take advantage of situations that would otherwise adversely affect their performance. The rigorous application of this process brings project managers and corporate individuals to question their decisions rightfully and take better business decisions.
