PROJ_PMI 315-DL : Risk Management


Description

You are the project manager for a multi-million dollar project, and there can be no mistakes. Your Executive Team is depending on you to manage successfully! What do you need to do know to assess risk so you can deliver against stakeholder expectations?

Through this course, students will gain an in-depth understanding of types of risks that threaten projects and the use of various techniques for assessing and managing risk and approaches to reduce project risk. Particular emphasis is placed on areas of risk identification, analysis, response planning and monitoring and control. Use of case studies will help illustrate how risk management is used successfully and will allow the students to develop practical skills for use in the workplace.
