Risk Management: Driving Excellence Through Greater Predictability

 Instructor: NK Shrivastava, PMP, PMI-RMP, PMI-ACP

Do your projects get derailed often? Do you think such problems could have been avoided or drastically reduced if there had been an explicit early concern with identifying and resolving the high-risk elements in those projects? Are you looking for a way to drive excellence on your projects? If yes, then this presentation is for you.

Project risk management is perhaps the least understood and most effective tool project managers, program managers, or PMOs can employ to increase the odds of project success. Over the last decade, it has become the backbone of organizations which successfully deliver projects, and in the current period it is absolutely essential to the success of a project/program/PMO. Solid and sustained risk management is an excellence driver for projects, helping project managers to improve consistency of project outcomes and prevent catastrophic project failures.

In this seminar, attendees will learn more about risk management, including identifying and prioritizing risks, performing qualitative and quantitative risk analysis, and developing and using a contingency reserve. This presentation covers theoretical as well as practical aspects of risk management methodologies. Examples from real projects will clarify concepts and illustrate the the best practices. Attendees will also get an opportunity to participate in a few exercises that will prepare them to implement best practices in their projects. Versions of this seminar have been presented at the PMI Global Congress and several PMI chapters.

This course is ideal for project/program managers, portfolio managers, PMO leaders, executives, project sponsors, change agents, project team members, business/systems analysts and other project stakeholders.

After completing the seminar, attendees will able to:

  • Define a project risk and differentiate between an issue and a risk.
  • Develop and use contingency reserves to respond proactively to risks.
  • Develop a risk management plan.
