The face of risk continues to change. Although risk is a constant-forever with us the interpretations of risk management shift with the times. The most recent shift came with the latest version of the Project Management Institute, Inc.’s A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge, Third Edition. The philosophy of the Project Management Institute (PMI) on risk management continues to shift toward adding more tools and reflecting the changing times that have, if anything, reflected increasingly greater project risks.

    to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
    I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and

    With havin so much written content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation? My site
    has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it appears
    a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my authorization. Do you know
    any ways to help protect against content from being
    ripped off? I’d really appreciate it.
