What do we do now?
Just because you've identified a risk doesn't mean you need to do anything about it. Then again, you sure don't want to ignore the wrong ones.

The fact is, a simple list of risks isn't enough to tell you what to do about them. What's the best way to handle each one? Should you bother doing anything about them at all? This course by Carl Pritchard of Pritchard Management Associates explains how to assess each risk's likelihood and potential impact, how to rank risks, and how to see the most important places to spend money and time to minimize risks and maximize your chances of project success.

  • You need this course if…
    • There's a lot of talk about "high risk" issues on the project, but no one seems very clear on what that means.
    • Management wants you to quantify your project risks, and you'd rather calculate a number than invent one.
    • You want to have a risk conversation with Management in bottom-line terms they will readily understand.
    • You would like to figure out which risks it's probably safe to ignore, and which ones you should do something about.

  • When you've finished this course…
    • You'll have a consistent risk vocabulary you can use throughout the organization, or at least your project
    • You'll be able to apply numbers to risk assessments in a way that makes sense and aids decision-making
    • You'll know how to identify the risks that really matter to the project, so you can take action

  • Included in this download:
    • Course recording by Carl Pritchard of Pritchard Management Associates
