Project Risk Management

About the course

In project management is inevitable that something can go wrong. The difference in successful project management is adequately assessing the risks and then executing a successful risk response. 

Organizations must have solid project risk management best practices in place in order to deliver projects within specified time frames, budgets, and quality requirements. Proactive risk management allows a project manager to optimize project results by implementing proven tools to plan for both threats and opportunities.

The course will present different approaches to identify risks, qualitative and quantitative methods to analyze risks and determine their impacts, risk ranking and response techniques, approaches to monitor & control and communicate risks throughout the project life cycle. 

Increase the probability of project success by applying techniques to reduce threats and enhance unexpected opportunities. Learn how to prepare a comprehensive risk management plan.
