International Institute for Learning, Inc Advanced Project Risk Management International Institute for Learning, Inc

Have you been surprised by unplanned events during your projects? Are you and your project team frequently fighting fires? Well, you are not alone. Uncertainty exists in any project environment.

While it may not be possible to predict project outcomes with 100% certainty, you can influence the outcome, avoid many potential risks and be ready to calmly and efficiently respond to unavoidable challenges instead of reacting to them and possibly making things worse. With the proper knowledge, risk can be identified, assessed, planned for and controlled.

The goal of this course is to teach the specific knowledge needed to set up risk management in your projects and to help you implement risk management processes to achieve consistent and predictable results in organizations where a higher level of risk management is required. This course is aligned with A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (the PMBOK 
Guide).
