Project Risk Management

The overall aim of this course is to enable participants to plan, manage and control project risks. Moreover, participants will be able to develop a project risk management plan and identify project risks related to the project’s triple constraints which are: scope, schedule and resources. The course also aims at assisting participants in qualifying and quantifying project risks and developing appropriate risk responses. In line with the above, participants will also design and calculate key performance indicators for monitoring and controlling project risks.
