Course description

Uncertainty is everywhere in our projects. Without addressing risk you are leaving your projects to the hands of fate. Without enhancing potential opportunities you are overlooking additional project value. This course is a practical view of what project managers and their teams must do to identify and manage uncertainty. It includes assessing possible risks and opportunities, their impact, and their complexity. It also discusses numerous forms of mitigation and political challenges. 

Numerous scenario-based knowledge checks evaluate what the student has learned while detailed responses help the student gain practical application. 

This course is interactive and uses various modalities to engage students.
