Assessing and Managing Risk

Virtual Delivery

June 21, 2021

Introduction and Background

Tired of being surprised by the same problems over and over again on your projects or in your organization? The only time you should be surprised is on your birthday!

The Assessing and Managing Risk Program focuses on dealing with the inevitable negative events which could occur and determining methods to either decrease the probability of those events or decrease the impact they will have on the project or both. This program also focuses on dealing with the potential opportunities which could occur and determining methods to either increase the probability of those events or increase the impact they will have on the project or both.

For risks to be properly defined, it is necessary to interface with the key stakeholders of the project.  As with the other aspects of project planning, the risk plan should by no means be developed “in a vacuum.” This program is designed to give a working knowledge of risk management.  Participants will be able to implement these concepts the very next day thus giving an edge over the competition.
