Burning Questions on Risk & Issue Management

Everything we do in life involves some level of risk, even getting out of bed in the morning. Risk management is one for the most important roles the project manager has to guide the project to successful completion. Where risks are present there may also be issues, differences in opinion or direction a task should take or estimate to get the job done. To help you better understand what it's all about and to address your questions or situational problems we've provided our answers as a guide to improving your capabilities.
