Risk Handling Responsibilities in Tanzanian Project-Based Organisations

Nyamagere Gladys Sospeter, Nicholas Chileshe
2021 Sustainability  
However, there is inadequate knowledge amongst the contractual parties on risk handling responsibilities in road projects, particularly in Sub-Saharan African developing countries.  ...  This study is aimed at bridging that knowledge gap by investigating the perceptions of contractors and consultants on the risk handling responsibilities in road projects in Tanzania.  ...  Even though risk handling strategies are used in project planning by building contractors, yet their application is at a lower level in the Tanzanian construction industry and hence there must be an increase  ...

Port Planning Under Deep Uncertainty

Mustarakh Gelfi, Hendra Achiari
2020 CSID Journal of Infrastructure Development  
Instead of ignoring uncertainties, the port needs to make contingency planning to deal with them. This study has benefits to make a robust terminal masterplan of the port.  ...  This study is about the port planning under deep uncertainty using the framework of Scenario Based-Adaptive Port Planning (SB-APP).  ...  The current planning practice might not quite robust enough to handle the uncertainties of the future in planning the project.  ...

Processes for managing project uncertainty with contingency planning [chapter]

Cathy Roberts, Chris Wild, Kurt Maly
1996 Implementing Systems for Supporting Management Decisions  
In this paper, we address the management of contingency plans in the inherently uncertain environment of large-scale projects.  ...  In our approach, we respond to the presence of project uncertainty by supporting the manager in developing and enacting competitive contingency plans.  ...  None of the methods mentioned in the preceding paragraph was designed to continuously handle project uncertainties.  ...

Critical Chain Project Management: Motivation & overview

Hilbert Robinson, Robert Richards
2010 2010 IEEE Aerospace Conference  
By utilizing a pooled or aggregated risk methodology, task durations can be shortened to the task's average time to completion, and the variability of the tasks in actuality can be planned for and handled  ...  Critical Chain takes a different approach to handling risk versus most traditional methods of project management such as critical path project management.  ...  In order to make realistic commitments in the face of uncertainty, project plans must contain some amount of safety or contingency. Simply, uncertainty is mitigated by contingency.  ...

Managing project uncertainty: from variation to chaos

A. De Meyer, C.H. Loch, M.T. Pich
2002 IEEE Engineering Management Review  
Uncertainty is an inevitable aspect of most projects, but even the most proficient managers have difficulty handling it.  ...  everyone can identify the tasks at the outset, provide contingency alternatives and keep to the same overall project vision throughout.( n1) Those are fair assumptions for routine or wellunderstood projects  ...  The team could, in theory, handle that problem as a series of foreseen uncertainties, building a contingency plan for each scenario.
