Recurring Event Event Series: Project Results with Methods

Project Results with Methods: Addressing Risks

April 17 @ 9:30 am - April 18 @ 5:00 pm

What do you do when it all goes wrong?

Risks are everywhere, and sometimes a chain of events can take the best laid project plans right off the rails. Prevention is better than cure, but are you ready for both? Because after all, as a project manager you’re responsible even if it isn’t your fault.

Course Synopsis

This course covers industrystandard 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 analyse them and go on to make the necessary preparations as well as to have a plan to deal with those that trigger.


Course Agenda

The two-day classroom 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 mody, or emphasise some topics to match the skill levels and expectations of the course attendees.
