Managing Risk and Uncertainty in Projects ~Get an in-depth exploration to identify, manage and mitigate project risks~

Course Summary

The truism about best-laid plans going astray can easily be applied to projects. Even in the most carefully planned projects, unforeseen challenges can arise that might affect the outcome. When developing a project plan, it’s therefore crucial to identify potential risks—and strategize possible solutions to any “if/then” scenarios that can be anticipated. Unfortunately, there will always be occurrences that can’t be predicted, which is why PMBOK(R) classifies uncertainty as its own performance domain, including general uncertainty, ambiguity, complexity, volatility and risks.

Attend this course to explore and learn strategies and tactics you can apply when managing projects in uncertain circumstances. Build the skills and techniques you need to effectively identify, plan, mitigate and manage risks and their potential impacts, both on the project and the team—and be able to recognize unforeseen opportunities.
