Convincing healthcare administrators and physicians to participate in Healthcare Project Risk Management is difficult at best. They typically perceive risk management as a lot of meetings, wasted paperwork, money and time. To persuade healthcare leaders that a minimal investment in healthcare project risk management is worthwhile, revisit some previous project failures. Identify the causes of the project failure and discuss them as negative risks which were not properly identified early, assessed and responded to.   If you make a reasonable case to those decision makers, perhaps you can justify a lunch meeting  devoted to healthcare risk management for the next project.  Invite the most knowledgeable project stakeholders attend and contribute their experiences.  The key at this first meeting is to keep things short, and efficient. Aim to complete risk identification, a quick and dirty assessment and the planning of one or two risk responses during the lunch.  Your aim here is not to perform a complete risk management process. You’re simply looking to demonstrate to these decision-makers that a little bit of time and their experience invested in risk management can pay big dividends. Risk Management Main Page

Bad things can and do happen on system development and implementation or IT project. That’s why IT Project Risk Management is a must on all projects, even if you can only spend 10 minutes on it. If you can anticipate one significant risk and make plans for preventing it, that 10 minutes is worthwhile. On even a small IT project, risk management is often worth the time and expense of a lunch, particularly if you get the user manager and a few knowledgeable users to attend. You start by tapping everyone’s experience from similar or related projects.  Then you record their ideas about good and bad risks. We all know that bad risks can make the project take longer or cost more. And good risks can make the project finish sooner and cost less. Risk Management Main Page
