Risky Business: How to measure risk and avoid project pitfalls

There are many things a project manager must do. Managing risk is a topic that fails to get a lot of discussion yet is an area that can cause an otherwise savvy project manager to have a failed project. Join us as we explore risk management best practices and review common and perhaps not so common risk tools.

Learning Objectives:

During this session, we will discuss the following topics related to risk:

  • What is risk?
  • Do I need a Risk Management Plan?
  • What is the Risk Management Process?
  • What tools can the project manager use to identify, monitor, and mitigate risk?
  • What is, why, and how do I set up a Risk Management Team?
  • What are the roles, products, responsibilities of Risk Management Teams?
  • What do the following topics have to do with risk, and why should I care?
    (Lead, supporting, management, schedule, deliverables)
