Abstract [en]

The paper sets out the results of a questionnaire survey and a series of interviews with clients, contractors and consultants involved in nine construction projects recently undertaken in Sweden. Despite the fact that risk management was a part of each project, many projects suffered from variations in cost affecting one or more actors. Risk management was not carried out systematically in those projects. Both identified and unforeseen risks often occurred in the projects and generally had a significant effect on the project cost. The purpose of the paper is to examine project risk management in practice and to understand how managing project risks from a process-oriented perspective could improve the situation. In particular, the involvement of the actors in risk management in individual projects is examined. Risk transfer and communication of risks between the project phases are explored. Finally, the factors that determine whether or not the actors consider an open discussion on risk management and risk sharing as beneficial are analysed. The main conclusion is that a shift from project-oriented to process-oriented risk management is required.
