Course Overview

How to deliver real improvement in risk management:

Projects, by their very nature, always carry uncertainty (i.e. risk). This training course teaches the practical steps and skills involved in identifying and managing the broad range of uncertainty typically found in projects, commonly referred to as project risk management.

Use projects from your business as the whole basis of the course

  • We always offer the chance to use a real (or simulated) project from your business as the basis of the whole course (and discuss your projects from the same perspective, throughout the course).
  • The course will provide you not only with guidance and tips, we will show the basis of ‘tools’ that you can use and also develop further for risk identification, which is one of the most challenging aspects of the topic.
  • We will look at all other aspects of risk management around real-world items (projects) as the basis of all practical sessions.

Key learning objectives include how to:

  • improve the identification of risk in your types of projects
  • assess and analyse risk
  • manage risk and demonstrably increase the likelihood of project success
  • develop successful mitigation and contingency plans
  • conduct a formal risk assessment and develop your own risk management plan
