Course description

This comprehensive workshop has been designed for experienced program managers, group leaders, project managers, coordinators, or staff managers (managers of project managers) responsible for the timely delivery of solutions and/or services. You will learn how to make informed and quantifiable risk management based decisions about the actual rather than perceived status of the project. This course uses a structured, multipoint, risk-balanced approach based on objective assessment of issues and opportunities to make hard decisions as to proceed, redirect, or instead cancel the project. This workshop follows the principles and techniques outlined in the Project Management Institute’s (PMI®) Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK®).
