Fundamentals of Risk Management

7 modules


Daniel Tousignant



Risk Management is one of the most challenging skills to master for a project manager.  “Project Risk Management includes the processes of conducting risk management planning, identification, analysis, response planning and controlling risk on a project. The objectives of project risk management are to increase the likelihood an impact of positive event and decrease the likelihood and impact of negative events in the project.” PMBOK® 5th edition

In this webinar, we will address effective risk management to ensure you are prepared to face the most common risks:

  1. Intrinsic Schedule Flaw
  2. Specification Breakdown
  3. Scope Creep
  4. Personnel Loss
  5. Productivity Variance

Quantitative risk analysis is a foundation of traditional project management, and qualitative risk analysis is the approach preferred by more Agile projects. This webinar will address both of these approaches to project risk management.

Why should you Attend:

Project Success rates continue to be challenged. One recent study by Mckinsey and Company states the following, “On average, large IT projects run 45 percent over budget and 7 percent over time, while delivering 56 percent less value than predicted. Software projects run the highest risk of cost and schedule overruns.”* Mitigating the risk of project failure is a skill desired by all organizations. Dan Tousignant, the speaker, has successfully managed projects up to 50 million dollars using the risk management techniques he will discuss in this webinar.
