For DB assignment prompts with a Part One and Part Two, Part One should be addressed and is achieved with 3–4 strong paragraphs for each part addressing the same questions below from different respectives.

Along with techniques, assessments, and rankings, there are risk management tools, both computer-based and handwritten. Describe how risk management tools are used, either individually or as part of a larger project management software system.

  • In view of the fact that there is a preponderance of computer-based tools, do you think that project managers can get lost in the software and miss particular risks within a project? Why or why not?
  • How useful are these tools at monitoring, controlling, scheduling, and risk management?

An individual who consents to an idea that anything can go wrong in a project is an

techniques in preparing and executing risk management plans. In some cases, project managers
have been overwhelmed by the software which has made such managers miss out on some risks



within a project, a factor that has significantly resulted in the failure of many projects. I...
