Project Risk Management & Compliance


This training will emphasize awareness of project risk management to minimize project cost/schedule overruns & improve project execution.

Project management is all about the management of risks; the ability to seize opportunities, minimize threats, and to optimize results. However, risk management is too often treated as a reactive process, or worse, not done at all. In this Project Risk Management conference, you’ll work through the proactive approach to both sides of risk: threats and opportunities. The approach is based on a clear understanding of both qualitative and quantitative approaches to risk management.

Targeted Groups:

This training program has been designed for project risk managers, risk owners, project managers, members of the project office, project sponsors, functional managers, senior management and individuals interested in project risk management

Conference Objectives:

At the end of this conference the participants will be able to:

  • Get an overview of the Risk Management Process
  • Learn to identify risks that affect project quality, time & schedule, cost and scope
  • Learn how to rank risks based on the amount of exposure to the company
  • Apply useful techniques to identify, analyze, mitigate and monitor risks in the project life cycle
  • Develop the skill necessary to quantify risks
  • Learn how to create an effective risk monitoring plan and risk management strategies.
  • Use a practical, six-step process to manage project risk
  • Develop a risk budget based on expected monetary value (EMV)
