Some of the stages overlap depending on the type of project and the method of procurement; typical stages are: definition of objectives; understanding the project; applying value and risk management; VFM and iteration of the process. 3, is presented. Many organisations utilise value management in conjunction with project evaluation as a means of achieving value for money for the project stakeholders. To enable the representative models to facilitate influence over the project such value and risk should be identified as early as possible in the process as per figure.

The process is iterative with loops back to previous stages that secures verification and project team ownership. The Association for Project Management’s Project Risk Analysis and Management (APMPRAM) guide gives a detailed explanation of the process. Risk management relies on a formal process for identifying and quantifying the subjective judgements of experts and project personnel. The risk analyst facilitates drawing risk information from the participants, creates an analysis showing the effects of risks and presents the results back to the participants.

This is a very common approach, and again it is a management failure; they do not understand why they should perform risk management and the benefits that can be obtained. The need to perform a risk analysis can emerge from planners and cost estimators, but the project manager must understand the benefits that can be gained and that resources must be used in the risk process. The project manager or the person responsible must help create the environment for the analysis, such as underlining the importance of performing the analysis, express goals and expectations, actively be part of the risk process and be responsible for the actions or responses resulting from the risk assessment and analysis.
