Review:

The book presents the global risk assessment and strategic planning (Grasp) method in a simple and easy-tounderstand manner. Although presented as a facilitator s guide, it introduces the concept through a basic approach, which helps to understand the origin, tiers and importance of Grasp. It explains the concept of values that all parties bring to a project, and how these knowledge capitals can be mined and utilised. A triangle is used to highlight the inter-relationship between stakeholder knowledge, situational awareness and the project. According to the authors, Grasp can be carried out in three optional tiers: workshop only; interviews and workshop; and interviews, workshop and supporting output tables. They explain how it is applicable to all projects and can be used at any point in a project life cycle for resolution of an issue. Certainly the practical manner in which the book explains the methodology must be applauded as it not only describes the process, but uses case studies to demonstrate its application. The inclusion of numerous knowledge templates and other information-capture tools does, however, make the book read like an instruction manual in parts. Nevertheless, I would recommend it for use by any practitioners with project management implementation and oversight duties. Lecturers may also find it a useful reference book to help students learn the concept as part of modules on innovative project management. --David Oloke, UK in Journal Civil Engineering Vol 169 Issue CE2 May 2016
