Understanding and managing project risks are vital to successful completion of any project. Projects are by their nature risky undertakings with potentially adverse consequences for many stakeholders should the project outcomes and benefits not be delivered. Risk management has become a specialised field in the project environment and practitioners must have advanced skills to manage risk successfully.
This course examines the methods of understanding and identifying various risks involved in a project. It will then introduce tools and techniques to analyse, estimate and prioritise risks. Appropriate risk response skills will then be developed.
