Structuring Projects For Success: Dealing with Project Uncertainty

All project plans, no matter how well prepared contain uncertainty which represents risk to the project objectives. Understanding and confronting project risk will help ensure achievement of the project objectives which is essential for a successful project.

In Structuring Projects For Success: Dealing with Project Uncertainty, the concepts of risk will be explored and then linked into project management. You will be introduced to the tools and techniques for identifying and assessing project risk factors. Through the use of qualitative methods, you'll learn how to prioritize risks and determine their potential impact on the project objectives.

Interactive case studies will be employed to demonstrate the application of the presented tools and techniques. A section of the workshop will be devoted to addressing typical organizational obstacles to adopting risk management practices.
