Course description

A Practical Approach to Assessing and Managing Project Risk

Projects are initiated with partial user needs and requirements defined. Project managers are faced with the challenge to provide schedules, resources, and cost estimates based on incomplete project requirements or unclear criteria.

To achieve higher levels of predictability of the project outcome, this approach would be utilized to identify and mitigate different types of risks and opportunities associated with a project such as Technical, Security, Schedule, Financial, Quality and others.
