This course covers industry–standard tools, terminology and techniques for planning and managing risk in a project. Probability and impact, mitigation and contingency and much more are discussed and demystified and applied through a series of practical lectures and exercises.
Starting with a simple exercise to examine risks and probabilities, this course expands far beyond what is commonly taught about the practical handling and management of risk, all without the need for complex mathematical understanding.
By the end of this course, you will be equipped to conduct professional risk planning and risk management, and to handle risks when they become issues.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
Aimed at more experienced project managers, this course provides the extra understanding and tools needed to help you identify project risks and their sources, qualitatively and quantitatively analyze them and go on to make the necessary preparations as well as to have a plan to deal with those that trigger
The two-day classroom workshop will cover these main subject areas. Apart from the two main exercises listed, the course is interspersed with shorter exercises and presentations intended to endorse and embed the skills and knowledge taught. Please note that although every subject will be presented, the course instructor may decide to modify, or emphasize some topics to match the skill levels and expectations of the course attendees.
