“It is with pleasure and excitement that ICCPM is launching the Special Interest Group – Managing Risk in Complexity (MRC SIG). The topic for this first SIG is no coincidence – it is deliberately aligned to the current ICCPM Roundtable Series.
ICCPM SIGs will be places for collaboration, sharing and the development of practical ideas, methods and tools for project managers. They will aim for broad participation internationally and to share a wide range of views and ideas.
All ICCPM SIGs will work hard to enable practical, value-adding outcomes focused on the challenges and opportunities experienced by members. Members will determine the topics of interest and will shape how each SIG operates. Our new ICCPM SIG communicates through a forum where you can share documents, form chat groups and collaborate.
Every ICCPM Partner organisation and individual is strongly urged and invited to take part in the MRC SIG or establish their own SIG. It is only through your active involvement that we can identify and work on the challenges in project complexity that matter most to you.
An Introduction to the MRC SIG
ICCPM’s MRC SIG is a forum for open, inclusive conversations and collaborative exploration into managing risk and uncertainty in complex project environments. Our twin aims are to learn from each other’s experience and views and also to work together to extend and improve current risk management practice in complexity.
Davin Shellshear and Dr Richard Barber will co-chair SIG meetings and coordinate activities. However, SIG participants will have a lot of control over the scope of the discussions and priorities for collaboration. A key factor in the success of the SIG will be the involvement of people with a wide diversity of lived experience, perceptions and knowledge.
Strongly influenced by participants, the SIG will identify and then work on a series of real challenges in order to reach useful conclusions and to both identify and improve practical tools and methods available for working in and on uncertainty in complex project environments. Feedback to all ICCPM members will include articles and papers in CONNECT e-Magazine.
