Can we manage Climate Change Risks?

Posted on

Hello to everyone,

In the “PM Network” magazine of April 2016 (pages 62-67) there is an interesting article that tries to answer the question “Can we manage climate Change Risks?”

Cover of April 2016

I am quoting from the article the below 2 parts:

“The question is: How do you plan for the future, when we know there will be an overall increase in global temperature and intense storms, but it is hard to predict precisely what will happen to any individual country?”

and

” By 2050, the World Bank estimates that adapting to an average global temperature increase of 2 degrees Celsius will cost between US$70 billion and US$100 billion per year.”

Cultural Crossroads: How Risk is connected with Communication & Stakeholders Management

Posted on

Hello to everyone my friends,

In the “PM Network” magazine of March 2016 (pages 58-65) there is an interesting article about the connection of Risk Management with proper Communication and Stakeholder Management in projects.

I am quoting from the article:

” China also has invested heavily in the Middle East, funding major energy and real estate endeavors in Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Iraq. Because this region relies heavily on immigrant labor—more than 30 percent of the Saudi population is made up of immigrants—China often leverages cheap local labor for these initiatives. That means the funding, management and labor might come from three very different cultures.

PM Network March 16

A Western project manager might very well have a mostly Indian workforce on a Chinese-funded project on the Arabian Peninsula(!!!). Managing that diversity requires a clear communication strategy, says Tom Neill Tanoos, a contract project controller and project account manager, Alcoa, Mission Viejo, California, USA. Mr. Tanoos, who has worked on Chinese-funded projects in Taiwan, Russia and across South America, used professional translators when necessary to ensure that the entire project team was on the same page. This helped team members across cultures clearly understand their roles and what was expected of them. He also stressed that the policies and procedures established in the project charter applied to everyone equally, regardless of their nationality.”
