About the course

Our individual two-day courses teach each of the three essential competencies that every project manager needs for success: project earned value management, managing multiple projects, and project risk management. These courses are offered individually or may be included in a customized certificate program at your company.

For projects to succeed, your team needs a well-structured and cost-effective risk management program. Your talent will learn proven methods and tools for recognizing, assessing, and responding to project risks. One key to this course is the use of real-life examples.


  • Identifying what can go wrong on a project during each of its phases
  • Determining which risks are important and warrant mitigation
  • Establishing cost trades among different mitigation candidates
  • Identifying and avoiding duplicated mitigation
  • Preparing an effective risk statement
  • Generating strategies to deal with critical risks
  • Determining the expected value of a mitigation strategy
  • Determining the size of the contingency reserve for the project
  • Making decisions under uncertainty and risk
