Project Risk Management
Delivering projects “on-time, on-budget and on-scope” is the responsibility of project managers regardless of project size, physical team location, procurement contract types or any other project variable. Managing project risk is a foundational skill every project manager must have to be successful.
The Project Risk Management course combines a comprehensive review of risk management concepts, methods, tools and techniques with hands-on, practical learning activities to ensure participants finish with skills which can be applied immediately on the job, whether managing projects in business, government or non-profit environments. Specifically targeting and improving the level of risk management within a project will increase the value of all other project management efforts.
Upon completion of the workshop, students will be able to:
- List the six processes for risk management
- Identify critical success factors for risk management
- Appropriately apply tools and techniques for risk management
- Perform qualitative and quantitative techniques to prioritize risks
- Identify and address barriers to a successful risk management process
- Prioritize risk based on probability and impact

All content delivered in the Project Risk Management course is aligned with the Project Management Institute’s (PMI)® Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide).
