The book is based on the author's Risk Management experience in several major and mega capital projects of Royal Dutch Shell, TransCanada Pipelines, TransAlta, Access Pipeline, MEG Energy, SNC-Lavalin, and others . It will show decision makers and project team members how to implement a consistent application of risk methods, including probabilistic methods. It will be based on existing training materials, models and tools developed by the author to make risk management accessible and easily implemented.
