¿Como controlar los riesgos del portafolio de proyectos?

¿Como controlar los riesgos del portafolio de proyectos?

Desde el blog de PMO Planet  propongo ahora un artículo con ideas interesantes sobre como controlar los riesgos del portafolio de proyectos . La primera idea que plantea el artículo es simple y directa: El registro de riesgos del portafolio de proyectos NO ES la suma de los registros de riesgos de cada proyecto. La suma de los riesgos mas importantes de cada proyecto no constituye la cartera de riesgos de la organización. Tal vez existan algunos riesgos que surgen de un proyecto y luego afectaa a todo el portafolio, pero en general un conjunto de riesgos se relacionan con la entrega de un solo proyecto (entregables y planes, etc.). Los riesgos del portafolio, por orto lado, deben centrarse en el impacto de la capacidad de la Organización para absorber el cambio, y si existe alguna probabilidad de que la Organización no pueda alcanzar sus metas y objetivos estratégicos. La siguiente idea, si bien no es tan impactante, es igual de importane: es común clasificar los riesgos del proyecto usando una matriz de 3 x 3 (a veces 5 x 5) analizando la prioridad de los riesgos del proyecto contra su impacto.
