Josef Oehmen, Associate Professor at DTU speaks about the next big thing in project risk management
We have reached a relatively high level of maturity regarding your project risk management processes and toolboxes. However, surveys show that we still struggle with risks and risk management in our projects - why is that so? And what can we do about it? In this talk, we will explore three "megatrends" in project risk management, where each in its own right has the possibility to (positively) disrupt our current status quo and advance the professionalization of risk management.
Prof. Dr. Josef Oehmen studies large-scale engineering programs, particularly their risks and risk management approaches. He is a regular contributor to PMI conferences and publications, and led a large PMI research initiative on the management of engineering programs.
Trine Veicherts, Project and Risk Manager Vejdirektoratet, speaks about project risk management put into practice in road planning, design and construction
Numerous cost overruns in major road projects led to a new set of principles for cost estimating and risk management in the Danish Ministry of Transport and with the Road Directorate. These principles will be discussed as well as the use of risk management as a management tool at both corporate and project level. The majority of projects have since come in under budget and ahead of schedule. The applied model for risk management places makes the Road Directorate among the leading Danish companies working with project risk management.
Trine Veicherts – Since 2007 Risk Manager with the Danish Road Directorate. Trine is a civil engineer with 25 years of experience in Risk Analysis and Construction Risk Management from the consulting engineering industry. Studied risk analysis at UC Berkeley in California and DTU. As a consultant Trine also worked with fault tree analysis, Bayesian net modeling, decision analysis, evacuation analysis and safety reviews for defense weapon systems. Responsible for project risk management in all major projects in all phases. Trine is also project manager for the demolition of the existing Storstrømsbro.
