The evolution and application of technical risk management within the United States Navy
Wheeler, Michael A.
MetadataShow full item record
This research examines how technical risk management has evolved throughout the Department of the Navy (DoN) and to what extent acquisition programs have implemented best practice methods and techniques. A sample of DoN program managers, risk managers, and other acquisition professionals was surveyed to determine attitudes on technical risk management and what fundamental methods are being applied. Survey data was also collected to determine what impact Department of Defense (DoD) and DoN technical risk guidance has had on the acquisition community and what guidance documents are being used. For cases where best-in-class technical risk management methods and techniques have not been applied, this research offers some potential solutions.
