In an increasingly ‘projectised’ world should we be preoccupied with projects or with risks? The management of risk has gradually emerged as a normal activity that is now a constituent part of many professions. The concept of risk has become so ubiquitous that we continually search for risk-based explanations of the world around us. German sociologist Ulrich Beck even noted that risk had become a dominant feature of society, replacing wealth production as a means of measuring decisions. Yet, at the same time progress is implemented through increments of projects; chunks of action that endeavour to bring about a new future that will improve and change our reality.
