Project Risk Management

Strong project execution really depends on solid project plan. Unfortunately, project plan is valid only when no surprise arises. To ensure a successful project, full awareness of potential risks is required and plans on mitigating risks are also essential. Therefore, effective risk management must be in place to keep the risks under control. It is because risk is an uncertain event or condition that, if it occurs, has an effect on at least one project objective.


Course Objective
This is a one day workshop which aims at providing practical guidance for people who would like to gain more knowledge in the risk management knowledge area and to gain more insight into how such techniques can be applied on real life projects. Project Managers are especially concerned about project risks particularly if those risks have negative effects on the projects and would like to keep the risks under control.

  • Plan Risk Management
  • Identify Risks
  • Perform Qualitative Analysis
