Managing Project Risks

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 course you’ll learn and practice a systems approach and process for identifying, analyzing, planning, and controlling risk. You’ll also learn how to incorporate your risk management plan into the overall project plan and create options for executives when scheduled completion dates or budget targets are affected.

Prerequisite: Participants should be familiar with Work Breakdown Structure and Critical Path Methods before taking this course.
