The dissertation has carried out extensive literature review in this area of risk management, and it points out to the fact that project management usually has got unknown risks associated with it. The general format to be followed is based on the pattern of extensive literature review, an analysis of the findings and the recommendations based on the findings. The paper has got an elaborate introduction and the methodology is clearly stated out. The literature review is elaborate, and there is a clear emphasis on the number of the related topics on tackling risks which happen when tackling the projects. The paper has identified research gaps, and contends of the fact that projects continue to fail. This paper is evidence based and it achieves the readers’ anticipation in the creation of the perfect connection between the increased risks and project management. There is an evidence based literature review in this area of study that the religiosity plays an important part in the determination and calculation of risks.
The paper has got six topics divided into introduction, literature review, research methodology, presentation of findings, research analysis and discussion and finally ends in conclusion. The paper uses qualitative research methodology in carrying out the research, and the same is corroborated using findings which have to be verified. These are then effectively analyzed to their logical conclusions. This is therefore an effective paper worth studying in this area of concern. Müller, R. (2013).

Dissertation is written on a good area of concern, and it indeed explores some of the basic problems which have continually riddled the Banking sector. It’s therefore a good reference point, given that risks have continued to create more problems within the Banking sector, not only in Swiss Banks, but the problems continue to hit Banks all over the world. However, the approach taken in writing the paper is does not make it compliant with the general requirements of what a dissertation should look like, as it comes up with the analysis of the pertinent issues, and the collection of the data. It’s my view that the paper has got numerous subtopics within major topics which could ideally be linked together. The paper is divided into four parts with the introduction, various subtopics on comparative literature and concludes with recommendations. The paper does not state clearly the methodology adopted, neither does it have the literature review on its own.
