About the course
This Oxford virtual seminar will emphasize project risk management awareness to minimize project cost/schedule overruns and improve project execution.
Risk management in projects is too often treated as a reactive process, or worse, not done at all. In this Project Risk Management course, you’ll work through the proactive approach to both sides of risk: threats and opportunities. The approach is based on a clear understanding of both qualitative and quantitative approaches to risk management.
By the end of this Oxford virtual training seminar, participants will be able to:
- Examine threats and opportunities facing your projects
- Consider project risks from both a top-down and bottom-up perspective
- Get to grips with a proven six-step risk management process
- Evaluate and respond to risk at strategic, project and task levels
- Anticipate possible causes of cost and schedule overruns, together with poor quality of work,
- Identify early warning signs on time so that corrective action can be taken to minimize or mitigate the impact.
