Delivering successful results depends on the project manager’s ability to increase the probability and impact of positive events and decrease the probability and impact of negative events in their projects. Although both the PMBOK® Guide-Fourth Edition and the Practice Standard for

Risk Management describe processes to assist the project manager in these goals, students who want to apply advanced risk management tools and techniques will benefit from this course and learn to;

  • Balance the competing demands of stakeholder objectives with project capabilities and capacity,
  • Analyze the human factors dimension of risk management, and
  • Evaluate the impact of risks and uncertainties to the post-project realization of value and capture of benefits.
