Seminar Description

All projects are risky, and effective risk management is a key contributor to project and business success. Project risk management is well established, with an agreed process, accepted methods and proven techniques. Despite this consensus, some elements of risk management are still problematic. This intermediate level master class addresses these sticking-points, presenting practical solutions to the most difficult parts of the risk process. 

The seminar includes a number of exercises to allow delegates to practice the areas discussed, providing a safe learning environment where skills can be developed before returning to the workplace. The course will benefit anyone involved in a project which is subject to uncertainty; project managers and risk practitioners who wish to extend their skills to manage risk more effectively; and any project stakeholder with an interest in maximizing the chances of project success.

What You Will Learn

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Recognize key concepts: relating uncertainty, risk, threat and opportunity
  • Summarize the risk process
  • Explain issues with identification: finding and describing risks
  • Examine aspects of assessment: defining scales and understanding exposure
  • Recognize realistic responses: strategies and tactics
  • Implement issues: reviews and updates
  • Explore how to keep it alive with communication and buy-in
