为数字革命管理风险

- 5 - 100 x81Companies on the way to digital transformation must deal with constant change. 这是真的,特别是在技术实施项目中, 无论是执行复杂的移动应用程序, 高级分析或物联网(IoT). 这就像在你面前蜿蜒曲折的小路上跑步. To make a technology implementation project successful – and to get the most out of an investment – project managers must be constantly on the lookout for the risks inherent in the changing landscape.

Organizations often underestimate the work involved in managing risk for digital implementation projects, 以为这样会让他们慢下来. 但在现实中,情况恰恰相反. A digital project manager who can anticipate risks before they arise and adapt as necessary will radically speed deployment. 

Here are the Top 5 ways to successfully manage risk in a technology implementation project:

  1. 寻找积极的一面. Risk management is most commonly thought of as a way to prepare for what can go wrong, but looking ahead to prepare for future events is a powerful way to identify what can go right. 事实上,谨慎的风险管理可以增加项目的回报. 例如, many retailers initially began converting web applications to fit mobile formats to meet basic competitive demands, but they quickly found that mobile apps were a great tool for presenting customers specific offers based on buying patterns. Identifying this opportunity allowed them to create new opportunities to grow revenue.
  2. 依靠专家. Whether a company is migrating workloads to the cloud for the first time or introducing automation, seeing potential opportunities and pitfalls is far more likely when subject matter experts are involved. Look in house first for the appropriate experts, but don’t be afraid to look outside as well. 它可以支付股息. Technology suppliers and consultants who help select and evaluate those suppliers can add a valuable perspective when examining the possible future impact of new technologies. 希望通过移动设备向客户营销的公司, 例如, often lack knowledge of state and federal restrictions on text messaging and must seek expertise in privacy law.
  3. 把它写下来. 每个技术项目都潜藏着大量的风险. A technology could take off faster than anticipated or a new supplier could go belly up. Keeping track of the risks in an organized fashion is the best way to avoid negative implications and be ready to take advantage of the opportunities. 识别风险时,记录风险, 注意到撞击的可能性, a plan to reduce the probability of the negative and increase the probability of the positive, 如果它真的发生了,就会一步一步地做出反应.
  4. 使它可见. The risks of a new technology implementation project often are shielded from organizational leadership with the thinking that – if known – they will jeopardize continued support and funding. But successfully managing a technology implementation demands the opposite. Communicating risks and a well-crafted mitigation plan will help educate leaders about potential future issues without inciting unnecessary fear and prepare leadership for the possibility of providing support if the risk does come to be.
  5. 继续做下去. 太频繁, risk management is viewed as a one-time event executed early in the project lifecycle when risks are cataloged and then set aside as the implementation schedule becomes the primary focus. Instead, know that technology and business conditions are forever changing. Continue to scan the horizon for potential obstacles and opportunities, involve experts as needed and carefully document and communicate risks for the entire life of the project.

Even the most by-the-book technology implementation projects involve risk. As disruption and the constant change it represents increasingly define today’s business environment, project managers must become masters at identifying and responding to potential risks. e尊国际不能控制未来,但e尊国际可以为它做准备.
