Managing Project Risks (Online)
Risk is a given in any project, and the better you understand how to identify and prepare for it, the more likely you are to minimize your exposure to it.
In this online program you’ll learn and practice a systems approach and process for identifying, analyzing, planning, and controlling risk. Over six weeks, you will learn how to incorporate a risk management plan into the overall project plan and create options for executives when scheduled completion dates or budget targets are affected. Each module consists of self-study pre-work and exercises, a live 2-hour, instructor-led, interactive learning session, and post-session skill application and reflection exercises.
Prerequisite: Participants should be familiar with Work Breakdown Structure and Critical Path Methods before taking this course.
