Project Business Risk Management 1(2):131–145. 2 Existing Approaches to Risk Management EVOLVING UNDERSTANDING OF RISK Risk management practitioners do not agree about the definition of risk. Given the long history of risk management it might be surprising that this question still excites any interest at all. But risk management, like all disciplines, is not standing still, and the definition question is part of the ongoing development of risk management as an essential tool for the effective manager.

Linked to the discussion about definitions of risk is a parallel debate about processes. Those who define “risk” as wholly negative and who see “opportunity” as something distinct naturally advocate separate processes for risk management and opportunity management. Conversely, those who view “risk” as a common term encompassing both opportunities and threats accept the possibility of managing both in an integrated manner through a common process. For example, the Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge from the Project Management Institute (PMI PMBoK) defines risk management as “The systematic process of identifying, analysing, and responding to project risk.

However, some professional bodies and standards organizations have gradually developed their definitions of “risk” to include both upside and downside. Several of these have neutral definitions where the nature of the effect is undefined, and which could therefore implicitly encompass both positive and negative effects. ” The evolution of these “official” definitions of risk is discussed in Chapter 2. ” It is important, however, because the decision to encom-pass both opportunities and threats within a single definition of risk would be a clear statement of intent, recognizing that both are equally important influences over business and project success, and accepting that both need managing proactively.
