Adam and Brad articulate what really is at hand here. Even if my client would rather not have “wasted time” discussing future hypothetical risk (which we face now in real-life), it’s the service provider’s role to artfully find that communication/commitment path up front, so that it both covers the potentials, and leaves the client having felt they didn’t invest their energy talking about the unnecessary. This book helps to set the foundation to deliver security and rebuilt trust in this project relationship. Thanks guys!
I test drove the core principles and the four primary project artifacts on a small solo project while I was reading this. The project documents were simple to create and useful. I was forced to confront difficult challenges (unknowns) I had been “conveniently” putting off. In truth, these unknowns were the source of my frustrations and inefficiencies on the project. Assessing the risks, moving challenges out of my blind spot, and taking committed action to mitigate them was hard. The outcome transformed a building dread into a sense of confidence and relief. The project became easier.
My most critical take away from Risk Up Front was the focus on culture change. Even with my test project team of one, there was a significant impact. The most important statement the authors make is in the prologue. “Although [RUF] talks about tools and practices, we apply a laser focus to issues that affect behavior and results.” As a rugby referee, I can assure you that if your directives, penalties, cards and chats with the captains don’t affect behavior and result, everyone is in for a long, miserable game. RUF makes the convincing case that the same is true for projects. Using a RUF approach, the mechanisms to affect behavior and results are embedded in how a team works together. True culture and success are emergent properties of the team members actions and interactions. Taking on Risk Up Front can get you there.

I can already see opportunities to incorporate the concepts from the RUF methodology into my daily work, and would be really interested in running a RUF based project.
