4 Information Gathering Techniques for Projects


Information Gathering Techniques are methods that are used to collect data that will assist the project team in identifying risks for the project. Some of the techniques include:


#1 Brainstorming

This is used to identify overall project risks or may focus on the risks within a particular project segment or workplace. In using brainstorming technique, stakeholders come together in order to analyse the project, identify risks and determine the feasibility of projects.

#2 Delphi Techniques

This is used to generate a consensus among project risk experts who anonymously submit that risk list to a facilitator. Because it relies on achieving consensus, the Delphi technique may be difficult to implement in many organisations.

#3 Interview

This is used to get information from people with wide experience across many projects, such as stakeholders, team members, Project Manager from previous projects and functional managers, to quantify the probability and consequence of risk on project objectives.


The output is a statistical interpretation of the data from which a range of probability can be expressed against a level of confidence that the risk will or will not occur, such as optimistic or low and pessimistic or high.


#4 Root cause analysis

This is used to identify problems, discover the root cause, and develop corrective actions for the problem.
