Abstract

Risk management continues to be a major feature of the project management of large construction, engineering, technological, research and development projects in an attempt to reduce uncertainties and to achieve project success. Working in Research and Development Centre of the United Arab Emirates Armed Forces is challenging as new developments are continues since the tasked projects include high degree of risks which may potentially interfere with successful completion of these projects. Therefore, a scientific approach and developing process improvements for identifying and managing the risks that exist in these projects are needed within the context of the UAE environment. This will fill a void in the literature, although managing risks of R&D environments have been studied for many years, where current studies fall short of studying these risks in the UAE Military. The benefits will yield theoretical framework for managing risks that fits UAE military and similar R&D environments.
