Challenges in Information Technology Project Risk Management

Are you an information technology project management with a PMP, PMP-ACP or Scrum Alliance CSM?  Do you know someone who is?  I am conducting a research study about the challenges information technology face when using project risk management methodology to address risk in information technology projects and looking for your input!

If you decide to participate in this study, you will attend a one-hour interview and spend thirty minutes reviewing the transcription of the audio recording for accuracy.  The interviewer will ask questions regarding your use of risk management in information technology projects.  The interview will be conducted using the webinar tool Zoom or Skype.  I will audio record the interview and then use the information to compare and contrast against other interviews to identify common challenges faced by information technology project manager when using project risk methodology.  You will receive a copy of the transcription of the interview via email to review for accuracy and to add, change or delete responses.

My research will be overseen by my faculty mentor, Dr. Mary Jane Willshire and is approved by Capella’s Institutional Review Board (IRB).

Remember, this is completely voluntary. You can choose to be in the study or not. If you'd like to participate or have any questions about the study, please email me at:

Thank you very much.
