COURSE DESCRIPTION

Tired of being surprised by the same problems over and over again on your projects? The only time you should be surprised is on your birthday!

Project Risk Management focuses on:

  • Dealing with the inevitable negative events which could occur on the project and determining methods to either decrease the probability of those events or decrease the impact they will have on the project, or both.
  • Dealing with the potential opportunities which could occur on the project and determining methods to either increase the probability of those events or increase the impact they will have on the project, or both.

For risks of the project to be properly defined, it is necessary to interface with the key stakeholders of the project.  As with the other aspects of project planning, the risk plan should by no means be developed “in a vacuum.”  This course is designed to give you a working knowledge of risk management for projects.  You will be able to use these concepts the very next day on your projects thus giving you the edge over your competition.

This workshop is interactive, including small group exercises, large group discussions, and instructor facilitation.
