    2. Looking at a project to determine what could go wrong
    3. Recognizing the important things to watch and plan for
  2. Each phase has different concerns
    1. In the beginning –  who, where, when, project type, etc. we need to look at
    2. During estimating there are other things to be concerned about
    3. While building the project we have a whole new set of concerns
    4. Some concerns may have been the same – like working in a new geography
  3. Analysis & Planning
    1. This is what RM is – analysis & planning

    3. Track & review

Recognizing the importance of risk management will help us keep our projects profitable.
