Educational Examples

With educational examples, our goal is to present the reader with situations or projects where a risk became an incident. By analysing what went wrong and what should have been done, we can hopefully provide valuable knowledge to the reader.

What went wrong

In these educational examples we present a case where a specific project or part of the projects have gone wrong. We try to examine where the “point-of-no-return” is (i.e., where the risk became an incident).

What should have been done

Then, when we know where the project went wrong, we will go back in time before the “point-of-no-return” and see what could have been done differently to avoid the risk becoming an incident.

What can we learn

By doing so, we can provide valuable knowledge and “experience” to, hopefully, get your critical thinking going, so you can avoid the same incidents in your projects!
