Discover the benefits of effective risk management practices Risk management may not be a standard course in architecture school, but it is an essential concern for architects and related professionals working today. Managing Project Risk is a key resource for integrating good risk management into professional practice. Based on a popular series of articles in AIArchitect, this accessible volume offers an on-the-ground perspective of what can happen on the job and what architects can do to prevent or mitigate threatening conditions and events.
