Thinking Positive about Risk Management

Project Risk Management planning is something that managers of many organizations believe to be important but often fail to actually implement. Implementing a risk management process within an organization or for a specific project is considered by many to be too costly and too time consuming and does not produce the value to justify the effort. Risk is therefore ignored until something unfortunate occurs. When a risk event occurs the reaction is, in many cases, a series of heroic acts or desperate measures to get the project or the organization back on track. This lack of a risk plan and the risk reaction process is generally very costly and many of the lessons learned during the recovery are not documented due to the fast pace at which the risk containment team operates. “Thinking Positive About Risk Management” provides a means for developing a strategy that will equip project teams and business managers with tools and techniques that will prepare them to address a wide variety of potential risk situations and opportunities. The goal of the session is to make project teams “risk aware”, “contingency prepped,” and “opportunity conscious.” This is an interactive and hands-on seminar focused on the application of practical tools that can be readily utilized by project teams as well as business managers.

Who Should Attend

Project Managers, Project Sponsors, team leaders, directors, supervisors, employees at any level who desire to improve their ability to develop a strong risk management strategy and plan and create a positive, proactive attitude about managing and controlling project or organizational risks.
