About the Seminar

Uncertainties are everywhere and they are unavoidable. Learning to “look around corners” is a critical PM skill, but it is a journey not a destination. Fortunately there are many tools and techniques to help you on your way.

This interactive, participatory seminar will help you build a risk management toolbox for your journey. In one day you will be introduced to common, standards-based risk management process frameworks and techniques, you will practice what you have learned using small group case studies and you will leave armed with a practical collection of broadly applicable risk management tips, tricks, and techniques.
