It offers an extended and iterative PRM process that includes the strategic selection and evaluation of projects, a flexible a dynamic approach according to the characteristic of the SME and the project, the inclusion of the stakeholders’ perspective, the mitigation of potential bias on risks evaluation, the use of risk clustering to improve project organization, the adoption of systematic and transparent communication to increase awareness on risk exposure, and the integration of Risk Knowledge Management into the PRM process, in order to obtain an enterprise learning process.
