Development of Project Risk Rating for Telecommunication Company

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 9870)


We developed the project risk rating (PRR) for telecommunication companies. It provides qualitative risk scores assessment of capital expenditures (capex) projects to rank them by severity of exposures, to check their fit into the company’s risk profile and, ultimately, to combine projects into the efficient project portfolio with the lowest risk given return. We discussed the definition, functions and advantages of investment controlling and presented the reference model of its main subsystem – project portfolio controlling responsible for building the efficient capex project portfolio. Then, we developed the model of PRR; worked out the example of PRR’s scorecard and discussed the advantages of the PRR over the existing risk assessment tools in project portfolio management.
