  • Global Risk Assessment and Strategic Planning: An introduction and facilitator’s guide to the GRASP Methodology
  • GRASP is a combined risk-based methodology for management planning and decision making in projects. GRASP uses multi-stakeholder perspectives to enlarge the project team’s knowledge base and increase awareness of the circumstances in which the project can make real progress. 

    The book provides a practical, infinitely scalable process for managing project risk, improving project delivery planning and executing stakeholder engagement programmes; all intended to increase the likelihood of better project outcomes. As a 'how-to' manual, the book combines user-friendly information with examples that allow a practitioner to use the GRASP methodology in an efficient and effective manner.

    Global Risk Assessment and Strategic Planning:

    • - delivers a flexible, methodological approach to create a richer picture of a project for all parties operating at any level in the participating organisation

    • - helps improve managers’ ability to plan, assess and understand their projects and the risks inherent in them
    • - provides managers with a more informed view of their project, which in turn helps them to make more informed decisions
    • - contributes to a manager’s toolkit by being an essential and practical everyday facilitation aid.

    GRASP has been designed to promote a culture of openness and positive attitudes to risk, stakeholder engagement and problem solving within projects. The methodology has been developed over several years and is in regular use by a number of forward-looking project sponsors and project management teams.
