Project Risk Management Plan For East Timor Solar Project

Risk Identification

This report depicts the importance of using the concept of risk management approach for the successful identification, assessment, planning and control of the factors that may interrupt the success rather progress of East Timor Solar project. The set of risks associated to the project are identified here. Not only this but also the way through which the risks can be resolved also elaborated in this report.

The risk management plan that will be developed for the ATA East Timor Solar project a small not a profit and non- governmental organization, a risk management program is being implemented. The phases that are considered for this project risk management include risk identification, risk, probability, impact and risk execution approaches (Bahramara, Moghaddam and Haghifam 2016). Each of these actions should be implemented properly to ensure that the project is successful. The details of the risk management process are elaborated in the below section:

Risk identification: Before the successful execution of the East Timor Solar Project the risks set those will be faced by the organization are o be identified at the initiation phase. In order to understand the potential risks of the project the potential risks factors should be understood by the project manager (Brookes and Locatelli 2015). The risk management cycle is comprises of four different phases such as risk identification, assessment, planning and risk control. Regarding the development of the project different estimations and also different factors are nominated that will be analyzed by the project manager in this phase.

Some of the potential risk factors associated to this project include lack of historical disposition; language as well as cultural barriers etc. Team engagement can be established with the help of leadership and motivation from the project manager. The contractors of the project are not properly engaged to the project with their assigned job roles. While working with the ATA project it is also identified that, the contract party is capable in accountability as well as transparency. The total time or duration estimated for the project is also not accurate from the project operational perspectives (Adil and Ko 2016). As long time the project manager will take that much additional cost will needed to be affords by the project team which is not at all financially beneficial from the project aspect. Thus, it can be said that the actors those will interrupt the general progress and on time completion of the project are the risk factors associated to the project (Santos, Ferreira and Araújo 2016). With the on job training and development program the technical risks can be mitigated rather completely resolved. In the below section a risk matrix is prepared to show the negative impact of risks.

Risk Analysis

From the risk matrix it can be said that the total ranking of any particular risk is partly dependent on both the impact and the probability of the risks on the success of the project.

Risk analysis: In this phase the risks those have been identified by the project manager will be analyzed accordingly based on their negative influence or impact. In other words it can be said that implication and analysis of risks can reduce the impact of the risks from the project success. The risks factors should definitely meet the justified resolution to resolve get resolved completely (Kerzner and Kerzner 2017). The causative factors rather the root cause of the risks are to be eliminated by the project manager to resolve the risks rather from further raise of the risks. In this phase it is important to install the possibilities of the vandalism. Not only this but the companies who are capable of afford and avail the solar power panel equipments, are needed to be cooperated o the project for its future success. After identification of the risks these are needed to be further mitigated by the project manager (Bahramara et al. 2016). Apart from this resource analysis, stakeholder management are the other factors associated to the project success much be analyzed by the project executives and the project team members.

Contract with the government and also with the other key stakeholders can moderate the risk factors. The ATA will also establish contract and terms along with the contractors to make sure the accountability and the transparency of the business organization via a governmental database (Frisari and Stadelmann 2015). However the company requires accepting the lower risk factors that includes the cultural barriers, language gap etc. Thus the company should incorporate successful mechanism through which the impact of the risk factor can be eliminated completely from the solar power project.

Risk management planning: In this phase the risk management approaches are to be planned by the project administration (Bahramara, Moghaddam and Haghifam 2016). The possibilities of government support or the total contribution from the government can be planned in this phase. In order to identify and install the necessary resources proper scrutiny on employee engagement is required.

Risk response and monitoring phase: In order to understand the current condition of the risks and whether they are rising again or not can be analyzed with the help of this factor. In this phase the risks are to be monitored by the project team members. The project monitoring is the responsibility of the project administration (Join et al. 2016). The East Timor has a different terrain that may impede the accurate installation of the solar system. Thus, in this phase where the project should have to be established is identified.

Conclusion

From the overall discussion it can be concluded that, it is the responsibility of the management team to establish or recall the location the location where it will be established. While installing the project it should have to be rescheduled to avoid excessive financial losses. However, after getting appreciation from the locals the installation should have to be done by the project administrators. Proper improvement strategies are to be adopted by the project team members to install the project in the friendly areas and simultaneously in the unfriendly terrains also.
