ResoLex was brought into the project in order to facilitate project horizon scanning. In so doing, the core management team were enabled with the ability to test and validate perceptions across the team. As a result of this, a fully comprehensive risk register was developed and maintained throughout this extensive project.
The utilisation of RADAR formed the cornerstone of a robust process to prioritise risk, then to further track and manage identified potential issues at project level. Subsequent reporting at Project Board maintained the focus and ensured all decisions were taken in recognition of the wider risk profile. In this way, any potential risk that could prevent both the completion of the project, and its success, was mitigated.
Project consultancy company, 3PM recommends the wider roll-out of RADAR horizon scanning as part of any proactive risk management process. The combined experience of ResoLex and 3PM, shows that established risk processes do not adequately identify soft risks, such as the potential to enter into dispute escalation. Adopting a transparent process, such as RADAR, in order to avoid such soft risks, is an easy way to manage-out long-established cultural issues that can result in inefficiencies.
Horizon scanning via RADAR encouraged a collaborative team-based approach to risk mitigation. The regular reporting allowed negative trends to be highlighted, facilitating the initial management review and instigation of corrective measures. Subsequent reports demonstrated the effectiveness of the actions, which ultimately led to project success in the form of achieving BREEAM Outstanding recognition, and Passivhaus accreditation.
