Project risk management is opportunity management. It is the ability to seize opportunities, minimize threats and achieve optimum results. Too often, risk management is seen as reactive, or worse, unresponsive. Nothing could be further from the truth. In this presentation, Peter Schmidt will walk you through a proactive approach to risk, threat and opportunity.

Learn How To:

  • Use a practical, eight-step process to manage project risk
  • Identify threats and opportunities and weigh their relative value in your project
  • Control multiple risks using concise strategies
  • Overcome psychological barriers to risk in stakeholders and team members
  • Make risk and opportunity integral components of your next project plan
