Well, what if he had no salary, had no means of support and needed a research fellowship to undertake it? This example shows up a number of things. Firstly, it shows how difficult it is to decide if an idea is good; one has to define good. Secondly, we might decide that an idea has to have low research risk, and if something goes wrong, what are we to plan to do instead? Indeed, it is argued that research agency funding committees are risk averse, and fortunately, this has encouraged funding earmarked for adventurous research (see Chapter 4).

1. In diligently managing risks in a project, it is important that you and those involved with a project to • Agree the folder detailing all the identifiable risks. • Review the risks folder for this project at least annually. • If necessary, introduce new risks and/or delete expired risks as a project proceeds. • Reaffirm the risk holders in this annual process. 1 A simple graphic to illustrate how to view a given risk. The worst risks are of high impact. The estimates of probability and of impact scores for a given risk are necessarily subjective, but you may well have a fairly good idea which risks are higher than others, and so you can adjust the numerical values accordingly to at least make a realistic ranking order.
