Project Risk management


One of the most important areas of project management and one that manages to frustrate and often times confuse project participants is Risk Management. Even though poor risk management is one of the most important reasons for project failures or project delays, still it rarely gets the attention and time it deserves.

Our seminar will teach you a step-by step methodology for identifying and analyzing risks as well as the strategies you can use in a project environment to mitigate the severity and impact of negative events while seizing the opportunities that might occur. Applying a detailed risk management process to your project allows you to deal with any uncertain project event in a proactive manner. It is obvious then, that the benefits of risk management in projects are huge. Risk management lets you ensure that negative unforeseen events will not adversely affect the project while at the same time allowing you to take advantage of positive events, possibly saving or even gaining a lot of money.

Risk management help you deliver your project on time, on budget and with the quality results your project sponsor demands. Furthermore, the application of sound risk management techniques strengthens the performance of project team members, since they tend to be more productive if they don’t have to “put out fires” all the time due to poor risk identification and much happier if they don’t need to repair failures or address issues that could have been prevented.

It can also cover the maintenance PDU requirements for the CAPM and PMP Certifications.



Anyone working with project teams, project managers, high level executives, managers in virtually any business function, project leaders, team leaders, businessmen, small business owners as well as anyone who wishes to further develop their project management skills with solid knowledge of risk management. The tools and techniques that you will learn can be applied immediately at your work signaling the beginning of a profound and positive change in the way you approach project risk management. The duration of the seminar is 8 hours.
