Risk is present in every aspect of every project. Rather than a one-time event, Risk Management is a process that starts the moment you are assigned as the Project Manager and continues until completion of the effort. This course examines the Risk Management framework, including planning for risk, identification of risks in scope, resources and schedules, assessment of risks, and how to monitor and control risks. Students will obtain hands-on practice identifying sources and triggers for risks, writing well-crafted risk statements, and working with stakeholders to reduce or eliminate risks. This course uses project management guidelines and standard terminology from A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge. Yields 9 PDUs.
Prerequisites: Principles of Project Management or equivalent.
