Simon & Schuster, New York. indd 18 1/15/2009 2:23:51 PM Chapter Two Risk Management and Cross-Cultural Leadership Intelligence Thomas Grisham and Parthasarathy Srinivasan Introduction There is a clear relationship between the articulation of value in terms of a project and the identification of risk. Indeed, according to Dallas (2006), the management of value and the management of risk should be complementary activities. Given that aspects concerning value are covered extensively in this section the intention of the authors is to explore aspects of risk management with regard to international projects from the perspective of practising architects.

Risk maps The key to the identification of risks on construction projects is to keep a firm focus on the most important risks, and actively manage them. To do this requires a way to identify the project and business risks and then filter, analyze, plan and control them throughout the course of the project. The use of risk maps is promoted by the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK, 2004), the Association of Project Managers Body of Knowledge (APM, 2006) and the International Competence Baseline (IPMA, 2006).

Many managerial concepts are strongly idea based or at best ideologically based and validated only by the personal success stories of the gurus who invented them. Building technology, engineering and construction as an applied science with a sound rational and empirical basis in mathematics and physics kept itself away from the architectural, philosophical and epistemological debate. If one likes to define the general paradigm of engineering technology it might be ‘implicit common-sense science’ mainly based on logical positivist or ‘Popperian’ paradigms.
