Abstract [en]

The aim with this thesis is to investigate the risk management at the department Road construction, The National Road Administration Region Mälardalen. The aim is also to study how the risk management could be improved to better support the project leaders. Included in theses aims is to examine potential problems with the current risk management and to suggest changes. It is of utter importance to define the concept of risk, to study how risk can be measured and in which ways risk can be analyzed. In doing so, a literary study has be done and fourteen respondents has been interviewed.

Risk is to be seen more as a concept than a quantity. Risk management demands time and money. It takes some effort to perform the initial brainstorm and the constant revision. However, risk management can lead to saved costs and the avoidance of accidents. To keep a list of risks is not a waterproof method, nevertheless it is better to create an awareness of risk than ignore a method for its flaws. Risk management can create a discussion about problems and difficulties, a discussion that might otherwise not have a forum.
