Topic: Managing Project Risk—Failure-Proofing Your Projects
Last date for Registration:
Early Bird : 06/22/2012
Regular : 07/11/2012
Risk and uncertainty are all around us. In this workshop, Tom will explore effective methods for uncovering and understanding project risks, and he will provide guidance for effectively dealing with them.
Tom will discuss risks typical in technical projects and show where to look for them. He will also survey both qualitative and quantitative risk assessment techniques for prioritizing risks, and demonstrate ideas for responding to the most significant project risks.
This workshop is based on Tom’s Identifying and Managing Project Risk, Second Edition (AMACOM, February 2009), recent winner of the 2010 award for project management literature from PMI.
Following the workshop, attendees will be better able to:
- Identify significant project risks.
- Prioritize key risks and potential problems.
- Develop effective responses for managing major project risks.
Discover how to find and fix risks on your projects—before they demolish your chances for success.
