Distinguishing and diminishing risks in today’s projects are crucial for project success. Almost every project is facing several risks throughout the project timeline. Construction projects in Finland are also facing project risks due to the complexity of the project. To minimize the impact of risks, an effective risk management approach must be incorporated into every project which also includes the effectiveness and measurement of its performance. Managing the risks is an important job but measuring the RM performance is crucial. Thus, the objective of this study is to analyze the risk management (RM) and risk management performance measurement (RMPM) through an indepth empirical analysis of two complex construction projects of Finland. To achieve the objective, a qualitative case study is followed by the authors of this article to identify the RM processes, major and minor risks of the projects, RM strategies to mitigate them and RM performance measurement strategies. Overall, this article provides a comparative analysis of RM and RMPM for construction projects and it can be used as a basis for further research into RM perspective in complex construction projects.
