Project Management Certificate Program

Project Risk Management (2 Days)


This course builds on the information provided in Project Management Essentials and focuses on project risk management. Project risk management is one of the most vital of the nine content areas of the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) because projects tend to be time-constrained, pose huge technical challenges, and suffer from a lack of adequate resources. As a result project managers are increasingly focusing their attention on risk management.

    You will learn key concepts and practical skills necessary to identify and manage risk. The course will cover: defining risk; critical success factors in risk management; using the active threat and opportunity management (ATOM) method for risk management; risk assessment; response planning; quantitative analysis; reporting; implementation and how to appropriately scale risk management processes to your project.

      Note: This is an elective course in the Project Management Certificate Program. Successful completion fulfills 15 Professional Development Units that can be applied towards certification or renewal. This is PMI REP recognized course work.
