PROJECT RISK MANAGEMENT

Course overview

Projects are inherently risky ventures. To enhance project success, risks have to be proactively managed. In this programme, you will learn that risk is identified, assessed and minimised in the project planning exercise and how contingency plans are developed. A project plan consists basically of six things – project objectives (requirements, SOW), a work breakdown (WBS), a project organisation (OBS), a project schedule, project baseline (budget) and risk management.
