An extensive case study has recently started within a major UK company that undertakes engineering process solutions, operating on a project management basis with multi‐disciplinary teams of professional engineers. The organisation recently piloted the introduction of an electronic document management system, that resulted in considerable implementation problems for the company. The consequence of such problems may be such that the system fails to achieve its original objectives. This highlighted the clear need for risk evaluation prior to implementation. The purpose of this current work was to understand management’s view of risk, identify methods adopted to highlight potential risk, and explore possible risk assessment in project management. The research is nearing completion and final results will soon be published.
