Risk management is the part of the project management process that is forward looking and is a critical component of successful project completion. Many project managers are unaware of or simply over look the process, thinking that their projects are too small to warrant such an evaluation. However, with the ever increasing pressure of businesses to bring projects, regardless of size, to completion on time, within budget and to the complete satisfaction of all stakeholders, risk management has never been more important. This course provides a comprehensive set of risk management skills including Planning, Identifying, Qualitative and Quantitative Analysis, Response, Monitor and Control and Governance. Upon the successful completion of the course the individual will possess the tools necessary to address and prevent costly project complications. The concentration is not limited to the “what” to do but rather extends to the “how” to do risk management.
