Managing Project Risks

Being able to manage project risks is now recognized as a necessary and important aspect of project management. Risk management looks at systematic ways to identify and mitigate risk; and to communicate the concepts of and significance of risk to stakeholders.Although risk is defined as an uncertain event or condition that may have a positive or negative impact on a projects objectives, we generally view risk as negative, and we prepare mitigation plans and strategies. It is, however, important to recognize that occurrences of uncertain events may at times present opportunities as well. By being ready to exploit these opportunities should they occur, we can often reap significant benefits.At this interactive workshop, you will work through a complete risk management planning cycle following recognized best-practices to identify risks, conduct a risk analysis, formulate and evaluate risk responses, and monitor risk occurrences.Team exercises will focus on demonstrating the application of the theory which has been learned, and rotating peer reviews will be conducted. In this way, youll benefit from others viewpoints, and get an opportunity to practice your teaming skills while learning about the application project of Risk Management. The learning environment is structured, but informal. Youll leave with the confidence that you can apply your new skills to your projects immediately.
It is recommended that students take the Project Management 101 and Managing Project Stakeholders courses before attending.
