30 minutes is about all the time you need to get a good idea about what RISK
ANALYSIS AND MANAGEMENT FOR PROJECTS is about. It is relatively easy to read,
useful and will enhance a student's learning.

Technical Remarks:

It is interesting to see this type of information from a European point of view.
The site references several interesting examples. It is a commercial for the
RAMP Handbook and ordering by phone may be confusing for those of use who live
stateside. Other than that, useful information!

I spent an hour reading through the site.
It is quite informative on the subject of risk, and risk management. The
examples are excellent.
The instruction on the method is reasonable. It is an advertisment for their
book, the explanation on the method is rudimantary thoguh sufficient for a basic
understanding. If you want more details, you'll need to buy the book. As a
primer of risk managment, it is excellent. Beyond that, you need the book.

Some of the important issues concerning Risk Management are presented, however when you want to go in depth some of the links send you to the advertising of the book. The content is short and general; I liked the way they have structured the risks in a company/projects.

I reviewed the material by reading the Methods and Analysis page and then simply
browsing the rest of the site. Yes the content presents concepts that are
educationally significant. Students' learning will be enhanced the way this
site breaks down the concept of RAMP into simple everyday decisions.

I spent 30 minutes reading through the site. This is very informative site on
assessing risks and their affect on a project
to be undertaken. I was suprised at how well the information was presented with
the subject being so complex and important. This is definitely a technique to
look at when the next project comes up. Very well done.

Technical Remarks:

Website navigation was well designed to make it easy to follow. Always room for

I spent about 45 minutes reviewing the various pages on the website. I used it
to verify that the Risk Management Plan for our project is on target. The
website was very informative and clarified some fuzzy issues. It went step by
step from beginning to end on how to develop a risk plan. The website was very
easy to use and follow. It would be a good supplement for the classroom.

This site is devoted to reducing or eliminating negative outcomes in projects.
It provides an overview of risk management from why it is needed to how it
exists during the life of a project or assest. This collection would be useful
for background material or supplement in a discussion on risk management in
projects of any kind. Links are easy to navigate.
