Uncertainty and risk management in project: terminological basis




Distinctive signs are set in definitions "guidance", "operation", "management". These signs are graphically represented by means of two-dimensional matrix that is built on the basis of main functions of activity. It’s offered to determine the basic distinctive signs of terms "risk", "danger" and "uncertainty" simultaneously from methodological positions of F. Nait and N. Lumann. It is shown that frequency of application of term "uncertainty" in the base knowledge sources and requirements to determination of competences in project management in relation to a term "risk" makes only 2-9%, that testifies to the loss of their frequency-balanced use. Graphic models of the uncertainty and conditional certainty of person, who makes a decision, are worked out. Coming from essence of these models, interdisciplinary determinations of categories "uncertainty" and "risk" are offered as the corresponding states of person and activity in the process of made decision realization.
