This subject was formerly called Project Risk, Quality and Procurement.
Organised as an advanced seminar, the subject exposes students to the various dimensions of risk management at different levels, enabling them to identify, evaluate and mitigate risk according to specific internal and external environment. The content of the subject ranges from fundamentals of risk management to advanced risk analysis techniques such as Monte Carlo simulation. Theories and principles governing risk allocation and mechanisms such as contracts are examined. Common and innovative risk mitigation strategies are articulated, and utility and risk attitude as key factors in the construction industry are discussed. The subject also touches on the management of low probability but high magnitude risk factors. Case studies centering on risk at site, corporate and industry levels are extensively used in the subject to develop students’ analytical capacity in the topic by real scenarios.
