56), a project is a distinctive undertaking that helps in producing a set of production within a clearly precise time, cost, and quality limitations. The difference between projects and the standard business operational practices include…

Larson (2008 p. 58) argues that there is also the risk level due to some uncertainties regarding the objectives. With a construction company, making improvements on the road among others is a full-time responsibility due to constant wear and tear, meaning continued challenges in managing projects, while adhering to tight deadlines. Another project involves introducing a new product into the market. This paper identifies that more research is required to validate project management methods, and to clarify which areas they benefit, and how to achieve reliably those benefits.
Levitt (1983 p.9) argues that globalization is the driving factor to project management due to the evolving technology that continues bringing competition in all fields. In construction, modernization brings about company closures, rising unemployment, and sometimes canceled investments. These events have a major effect on both the clients and the construction companies’ behavior. Research shows that drastic drops in demand and order shortages dramatically increase completion between companies in the construction sector. These changes increase the pressure on improving quality, and productivity, while reducing costs. In addition, globalization equally increases the need for project strategies and management that suitably and effectively manages project risk.
On the other hand, new product development is a vital organisational activity because it offers considerable opportunities for the organisations (Charan et al. (2010 p. 125). However, this process involves marketing, technical, and financial risks. Similar to construction, product development faces serious competition due to globalization with different products entering the market daily. In addition, the consumer through technology can access different types of products while comparing the costs and qualities among others. It is, therefore, important for a project management system that can

R=P*C Where, ‘R’ is the Risk associated with an event associated with a project and is a measure of the impact it has on the project. ’ P’ is the probability of the event occurring and ‘C’ is the costs to project associated with the event or the consequences of the event.
Executive Summary. This project is an explorative study of risk management and its mitigation strategy in NCB Jamaica Ltd Kingston. Risk management is an area, which plays a significant role in the banking industry. Any risk that is already identified and is to be mitigated can be considered a strategic risk?
The importance behind risk management can hardly be overstated. For a company to be successful, the fundamental steps in laying out the way to follow in doing business must include how the risks involved must be managed. If well managed, the way of doing business is hardly affected by the risks involved in the business.
The announcement confused a number of stakeholders because it is unclear how the program will be managed with closure on one hand and yet unconstructed new penal facility on the other hand. Both the program and the project will likely impact on the present thousands of prisoners, the penal human resources, the Ministry of Justice, the sustainability of penal services (pending plan and actual construction) and the rest of the stakeholders of the penology (Robinson, 2005, p.
However, some effective measures can be taken to minimize the occurrence of such risks. For this, proper risk analysis at every phase of a project is essential because it reduces the effects that any particular type of risk may produce for the project. In this regard, development of an appropriate risk management plan is considered imperative for any company, business, or organization.
Ultimately a number of theories were put forward by Organizational Behavior Specialists like Mclleland, Alfered etc that considered employees at the centre of organizational effectiveness and rated their satisfaction as the most important aspect of strategic improvement.
Risk relates primarily to the extent of the ability of a project manager to predict a particular outcome with certainty. The effects of risk can be positive or negative. Positive effects of risk are often referred to as opportunities. Threats are the negative-or "downside"-effects of risk.
