Mitigating Risk in Everyday Projects

Ways of Working


Whether we address it or not, we deal with risk every day. But how much time do we really spend reviewing and mitigating risk?

This risk-focused training course is centered on team-based and interactive discussions. During the training, participants will be engaged in learning and exercising key risk management methods as they work through real-world scenarios using a business simulation game.

Learning components are utilized to inspire open conversations and dialogue. The training examines how risk can affect representative project management topics, as well as potential solutions. Participants will review both simple and extreme project details that can range from highly impactive to catastrophic.

At the conclusion of the class, learners will be able to identify strategies for mitigating project risk and will understand the importance of proper alignment across stakeholders to reduce risk factors.

Carefully mitigating risk is, in the end, how we determine a project’s destiny!
