Description Please reply to both POST1: (Question to me from the professor) and POST2: in at least 200 words each. Original Post: Every day we take risks, and while some we are very noticeable, others are so minor that they hardly make us pause. The same is true in project management; however, risks taken can impact a project in a number of ways, and not always detrimentally. What are the key benefits of integrating risk management into a project? Explain how an effective project risk management process can relate to project success. My Post: As a project manager, one of the most important things during planning is thinking about what could go wrong. Risks may sound negative but are not because they are preventable. Many benefits accompany successful project risk management (PRM). First, risks originate from the disconnection between deliverables of a tactical project and strategic vision, which are attributed to poor definition of projects and ignorance to risk management. PRM, therefore, bridges this gap, ensuring project delivery corresponds to organizational vision and needs (Project Management Institute, 2017). Risk identification at the strategic level enables proactive management hence benefiting the overall project. Also, it helps in giving useful information in an uncertain environment to aid in decision-making. PRM minimizes risks and ensures that opportunities are maximally utilized; hence, an increased likelihood of accomplish both tactical and strategic objectives (Project Management Institute, 2017). The final and most important is that a culture that is risk mature is developed; one that recognizes the existence of risks at all levels but that can be managed. So then how does PRM relate to success? First, it is a process that establishes both internal and external risks, occurrence probability, potential impact, and actions (Larson & Gray, 2017). This is what planning for success looks like. Second, PRM enables timely risk communication with stakeholders. Identifying risks and dealing with them in advance ensures effective response and intervention. Third, PRM enables profit maximization and minimized expenses on activities that do not give a return on investment (ROI), hence prioritization of tasks that do (Larson & Gray, 2017). Fifth, PRM is proactive, so when a risk occurs, the steps taken could be used as a contingency plan instead of constantly extinguishing fires. Lastly, PRM gives an entire project evaluation because one is needed to assess how activities in an organization minimize exposure to issues and are exploiting opportunities for company strengths capitalization.

I agree that project risk management (PRM) bridges the gap to ensure project delivery meets organizational goals. Besides PRM what other project management tactics and knowledge areas assists with achieving the overall organizational strategy? Why is this important to note and understand? POST2: Integrating Risk Management into a Project Risk is a natural part of every project. Bissonette (2016) states that there are numerous sources of project risk. The sources include external risks such as inflation, market acceptance, exchange rates, and government regulations. Project managers must manage these project risks. To do so, the project managers must integrate risk management into all projects. Successful integration of risk management will aid in the successful completion of the projects (Bissonette, 2016). Benefits There are many benefits to integrating risk management into projects. According to Majeed (2018), the benefits of integrating risk management include: Aids in avoiding big disasters Enhances project revenues by saving project expenses Gives a competitive advantage over competitors Helps to ensure successful completion of the project (Majeed, 2018).
