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 risks on our projects?

This risk-focused training course is centered on small group and peer-to-peer learning. During the workshop, participants will be engaged in learning and exercising key project management methods as they work through real-world project scenarios using a business simulation game.

Interactive learning components are utilized to inspire open conversations and dialogue. The training examines how risk can affect elements of a project’s success, 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, participants will be able to identify strategies for mitigating project risk and 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!

Please note rgistration will close for this event on May 23.
