Studies suggest that 90% of project problems can be foreseen through the application of project risk management techniques. Proactively identifying and controlling risk greatly increases the accuracy of the project’s scope, schedule, and budget, as well as reduces the amount of time the team spends putting out fires.

This course focuses on improving the project manager’s risk management expertise, from initial planning through project closure. Participants will apply all course principles to a work-related case study taken directly from their work environment. At course completion, students will be able to identify, analyze, respond to, and control project risks.
