See also: The PCNet project (B): dynamically managing residual risk
Case A illustrates competent project risk management, including risk identification, assessment, and management. Case B illustrates the management of "residual risks", which may persist, despite thorough planning at the outset. This case prompts interesting discussion on the methods of project risk management, including their implementation and limitations.
The case describes a large and complex IT integration project, after the acquisition of one metals mining company by another. As part of the integration, 40,000 PCs, applications, and the network had to be consolidated into one system. The project lasted two years and involved 1,000 people across the organization.
