The PMBoK® Guide presents a coherent and comprehensive view of project management, with a set of knowledge areas that must be applied to all projects in any setting. Chapter 11 describes “Project risk management”, with key principles as well as a set of six generic risk processes. As a recognised risk subject-matter expert, David Hillson has contributed significantly to the risk chapter of every edition of the PMBoK® Guide since 1998. In particular he was influential in defining the six risk processes in the 2000 Edition, and describing structured risk response strategies in the Third Edition.

David Hillson was one of three co-editors for the ground-breaking first edition of the PRAM Guide in 1997, and he also wrote several of the chapters. This important document offered clear guidelines written by practitioners for practitioners, and influenced a number of other risk standards. David’s input continued to the second edition of the PRAM Guide, where again he co-edited the final document as well as providing key content. He is currently part of the authors’ team for the third edition, currently being prepared for publication.
