Risk Management

Why be reactive, when you can be proactive? If you are tired of having to pull your team off critical path activities to deal with the crisis of the day, effective risk management is the solution. Risk management, as an integrated component of successful project management, allows you to understand the uncertainty that is part of all project work and plan how to effectively manage that uncertainty. Go from leading your team through crisis after crisis, to effectively planning so you and your team can easily handle any surprise that might arise. Without risk management, projects are subject to surprising, sometimes devastating, events.
This course focuses on the concepts and building blocks of creating successful risk management within a project. Project managers must be aware of common risk traps and know how to identify, assess, and manage risks without jeopardizing the project success.
