Risk management is the iterative process of identifying, analyzing and responding to risks that may impact projects. Active risk management throughout projects is critical, as it prevents risks from becoming issues. It allows project leaders to proactively address risks, and thereby minimize negative impacts, prevent “fire-fighting” stress, and emphasize opportunities. Risk management may sound hard, but project leaders can get the benefits without doing complex models. This session will show participants how to use some simple, but effective processes and tools to manage the impact of risks throughout their projects.
Who Should Attend: This training is appropriate for all staff who are responsible for implementing projects or participate on project teams.

This session will introduce the best practices of risk management and describe simple and practical steps to use these practices to achieve project outcomes.
