Workshop Synopsis (Abstract):

Project risk has its origins in the uncertainty present in all projects. Known risks are those that have been identified and analyzed, making it possible to plan responses for those
risks. Specific unknown risks cannot be managed proactively, which suggests that the project team should create a contingency plan (PMBOK® Guide).

Project Risk Management includes the process of conducting risk management planning, identification, analysis, response planning, and monitoring and control on a project. The
objectives of Project Risk Management are to increase the probability and impact of positive events, and decrease the probability and impact of negative events in the project
(PMBOK® Guide).

With the knowledge and skills acquired at the end of the training program, participants will be able to use practical risk management processes, tools and techniques to manage
project risks of any size and nature. This will in turn ensure successful project completion, meeting project scope, cost and schedule.

Participants will also work through the proactive approach to threat and opportunity risks — based on a clear understanding of the powerful nature of both qualitative and
quantitative approaches to risk management. The training examines threat and opportunity from both a top-down and bottom-up perspective of 7 risk management
processes. Using effective tools, the trainees will learn how to evaluate and respond to risk at the project and task levels.

This course is conducted by an experienced project director and a certified PMP® trainer with an extensive exposure to management of R&D, NPI Manufacturing, Construction,
and Operational Projects on a global scale with a few well known international technology companies.
