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)

Grow Your Skills

It is particularly important for Project Managers to maintain and improve their project management knowledge and skills to stay competitive in the market. PMP certification is a critical component. As, during the resent years, project management discipline took a step toward more flexible and dynamic project management methodologies, in addition to the traditional waterfall approach, several new emerging methodologies became in high demand. Thus, training and credentialing in these methodologies became highly sough after among Project Management professionals. It is especially relevant in today's economic climate.
