Course Introduction

Strengthen Project Management Through Forward Planning for Threats and Opportunities
Managers are often under pressure to deliver projects on accelerated schedules, and to incorporate new technologies and innovations to stay ahead of the competition. These pressures and uncertainties result in adding risk to projects, which is one reason that qualified risk management professionals are now valuable members of project teams.

The Project Risk Management program introduces a well-proven and practical framework for project risk management, all aligned with the Project Management Institute's (PMI) global standard 'Practice Standard for Project Risk Management’.

Combined with subject matter discussions, participants will be organized in simulated project teams to work on real life case studies. Over a series of workshop exercises, the teams will apply a set of practical tools and techniques to develop complete risk management planning deliverables. Participants will be empowered with a set of risk management tools, techniques, and practical skills to immediately contribute to their crucial projects on site and back at the office.
