Project Risk Management

Across the project life span (project life cycle)

Course Description

All projects are inherently risky, and zero risk is not an option. The successful project manager will therefore be the one who manages risk effectively by minimized threats and maximizing opportunities, while maintaining a clear focus on achievement of project and business objectives.

This course takes the participants through the essential concepts of project risk management, including extensive coverage of the processes that are required to effectively manage risks. The course will emphasize that risks and risk management for a project evolve over the project life span and is not a one-off exercise that we do during the project planning processes. The course also stress that risk management, like project management, has to be customized and adapted to the organization and the project environment.

The course uses global standards, primarily PMI® a Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge® and the Practice Standard for Risk Management as the foundation and platform. However, the course also draws on international best-practices, ISO standard, and the SUKAD own research and development effort.

This is a foundation course for the PMI® Risk Management Professional (RMP) certification but is not a certification preparation course.
