Managing assumptions

An interesting post on PM Hut from last month ( recommends managing assumptions as part of risk management, giving the following tips:

  • consider risks from a range of perspectives (brainstorm with colleagues to avoid missing key risks)
  • think broadly (work with stakeholders)
  • think deeply (work with colleagues at all levels in the organisation)
  • document all assumptions
  • keep scanning as the project progresses
  • update the assumptions document
