Solid risk management best practices are critical to delivering projects that adhere to timeframes, budgets, and quality requirements. You will learn different approaches to risk management, including how to rank and respond to risk, monitoring and controlling risk, and communicating risks throughout the project lifecycle. Risk is inevitable—but it doesn’t have to completely derail your project’s success.
