Event Description:

How well do you play the Risk Game with your projects? Every project has elements of risk within it, dealing with those risks is so much more than just a simple plan. This workshop will cover all the risk processes that PMI recommends for every project, including: determining how to deal with risks (the plan), then identifying, analyzing, and planning what to do if the risk does occur, as well as implementing individual risk plans and continuous monitoring of project risks.  Participants will learn about each risk process, then do activities with a mock project to practice the risk tools and techniques associated with the process.

Course Objectives to maximize the Value of your Portfolio include analysis of:  

Be able to:

  • Recognize and understand risk types
  • Determine how to the plan risk management (The Risk Game strategy)
  • Identify risk sources and document specific risks
  • Analyze and prioritize risks
  • Create a plan for individual risks if they do occur
  • Monitor project risks and implement risk responses as needed


Audience: The workshop is targeted to project managers and project team members that deal with projects and their risks.
