What is this course About?

Brief Overview

Project Risk Management is a process or activity associated with identifying risks, analysing risks, developing appropriate responses to risks and monitoring risk triggers to projects. Managing risks on projects is a process that includes risk assessment and a mitigation strategy for those risks. Risk assessment includes both the identification of potential risk and the evaluation of the potential impact of the risk. A risk mitigation plan is designed to eliminate or minimise the impact of the risk events – occurrences that have a negative impact on the project. Identifying risk is both a creative and a disciplined process.
