About the Program

Don’t let the specter of Murphy’s Law haunt your projects. While risk is an undeniable fact of life, you can proactively manage threats to your success. Please join us to see how you can use the Project Management Institute’s risk management process to prepare you and your team to keep any project on track despite the obstacles that are sure to materialize along the way. We’ll use a practical example and a hands-on approach to explore the process.
