Art and Science of Risk Management

A methodical, holistic, and collaborative exploration of the Risk Management Life Cycle
as recommended by PMI’s PMBOK Guide (6th Edition).

Registration closing 8:00 P.M. Wednesday March 25, 2020

saturday WORKSHOP

Successful PM Practitioners often describe Risk Management as “Project Management = Risk Management”. Risk Management is a proactive approach that provides an opportunity to provide valuable insight in all other 9 knowledge areas in terms of both the potential risks that may have negative impact on the project objectives, as well as positive opportunities to enhance the project objectives, and be ready for contingencies in cases when the unknown will happen.

The goal would be to revitalize the Risk Management (RM) concepts and walkthrough the RM life cycle using RM Framework (self-developed Template). The important traits of this session would be:

  • 30 hours of hands-on instructional journey into 3 hours interactive session.
  • 25% instructional and 75% hands-on (approximately) interaction to comprehend Risk Management life cycle using a Case Example.
  • Appreciate the importance of the Risk Management, and briefly refresh the RM life-cycle processes as recommended by the PMBOK 6th Edition.
  • Draw valuable lessons from published reports about the project failures.
  • Learn a structured multi-tiered approach that can be used to identify the different types of risks, analyze for effective prioritization and contingency planning, and organize the Risk Management work using the devised template.
  • Explore techniques for effective monitoring and control of identified, and unidentified, risks and opportunities.

    This interactive session would cover all the 3 cornerstones of the PM Talent Triangle as outlined below. The main learning objectives are:
  • Comprehend the importance of project risk management and RM processes,
  • Identify risks, analyze project risks using qualitative and quantitative methods
  • develop effective risk response strategies and plans, and create contingency plans for the prioritized risks
  • Explore tools and techniques to effectively monitor and control project risks
