Option #1: Sources of Technical Risks
- Identify an “intolerable technical risk” on a project with which you are familiar, or on one that you can research.
- Describe the issue that created the intolerable technical risk and describe the risk itself.
- Describe the treatment plan using cost-benefit analysis, where the risk severity is reduced to an acceptable level. (A risk register is not required for the paper with this option.)
- For this assignment, you will be preparing your paper for submission to a conference or journal for publication, as well as submitting the paper to your instructor.
- You may submit the paper to your choice of outlet (conference or journal). Since you may be charged for your submission to some outlets, you should examine options for submission by searching the internet to find both the best fit for your paper and the acceptable cost to you. There are many journals and conferences that consider papers for publication. You might consider submitting to PMI Knowledge Shelf or AACEi Conferences (Links to an external site.). Another example is The Clute Institute (Links to an external site.), which publishes many journals and hosts conferences. Note that some journals accept undergraduate and/or graduate submissions. Visit the Council for Undergraduate Research (Links to an external site.) to learn more. Read about the journal and the types of research it is interested in publishing. Make sure you understand the journal’s submission guidelines. Some outlets require submissions in APA format and some do not; and some have special accommodations for student publications.
- This assignment does not require the student to submit the paper for publication, but it does require the student to prepare a scholarly paper **for potential submission to a selected publication outlet **with all the requisite academic and practical content in a format as stated in the publication guidelines. Again, the assignment includes that the student should identify the outlet, and deliver the scholarship and format of the paper in accordance with that publication’s style guidelines. The professor will not submit your paper to the publication outlet as that is at the discretion of the student. Actual submission to the outlet is not part of the assignment requirements, but submission in the outlet’s style guideline format to the instructor is.
- ******In an appendix after your references page, identify the following information for your submission: a) journal or conference name; b) why your paper is best suited for this outlet; and c) the submission guidelines in terms of process, requirements, cost, and general acceptance rates, if stated.
- *******Your paper must be 5 pages long, not including the required title and references pages and the appendix.
- Submit your paper in the format required by your selected outlet. (For example, if the outlet requires papers to be single spaced, then use single spacing.)
- *******Support your paper with a minimum of two current (no older than five years) scholarly sources from the CSU-Global Library, in addition to any course lecture material you wish to use. You must also use the Fontaine (2016) reading as one of the sources in your paper.
Fontaine, M. (2016). Chapter 4 – Project risk management. In P.A.J. Green (Ed.), Enterprise Risk Management: A Common Framework for the Entire Organization. Waltham, MA: Elsevier
- Of course, you may always exceed the minimum number of sources.
- Your entire paper must be formatted according to the CSU-Global Guide to Writing & APA (Links to an external site.).
