Effective Risk Management Seminar

November 16, 2016 @ 8:30 am - 5:30 pm



Managers seek to create an ordered path through the chaos of a fast-paced, constantly changing environment to achieve business success. They are expected to understand business objectives, develop and implement plans, measure progress against time, cost and business requirements, while balancing priorities among different and potentially conflicting stakeholder groups. Identifying, analyzing, and appropriately responding to risk in a proactive fashion, rather than waiting for the overwhelming avalanche of issues, is an essential skill of the professionally competent manager. This course provides a practical approach to managing risk and detailing and implementing an effective risk management plan.

The course offers a comprehensive look at the risk management process, including tips to apply it and traps to avoid based upon more than 700 lessons learned from actual projects. Throughout the course, the instructor explores how state-of-the-art concepts can be applied to project risk management. Using examples from actual projects, the course provides participants with practical, ready-to-use approaches for risk planning, identifying and analyzing project risk issues, developing risk handling strategies, and monitoring progress in implementing risk handling strategies.
