  • Risk management in the context of construction is more than a series of boxes to tick.
  • Systematic analysis and investigation of factors in the first instance, followed by a continuous process of relitigating the question of “now has anything else changed?”
  • Risk management typically is addressed on a project by project basis, but recent domestic and international examples show individual project risk treated in isolation from programme risk
  • Professor John Tookey of Auckland University of Technology will discuss a range of recent NZ / global examples of problematic construction risk management at the nexus of project risk and corporate aspiration.
