Project risk management aims to reduce the likelihood of failure of the project. A risk is
defined as an uncertain condition or event that can have negative or positive impacts if it occurs.

environmental and social issues in a manner that assists the society, while still strengthening
business activities in the process.

to getting rid of 211 million passenger vehicles from the American highways and roads in a
single year. This project can be a risky one for Walmart stores, given that it relies on other
companies on the supply chain, including manufacturers, distributors, and suppliers to function



effectively. The success of Walmart i...
