Don't just sit there… Do something!
Once you know the risks the risks to your project and the potential value of dealing with them, you have to figure out what to do next. Should you spend money on it now, or wait to see if something happens? And how much money is reasonable for dealing with the potential problem?

This course by Carl Pritchard of Pritchard Management Associates explains how you can make smart risk decisions for your project, and get the execs on your side. In this session, Carl illustrates the different risk strategies you can employ on your projects and recommends ways to select the best approaches for your situation. Then he shows how you can present alternatives to management based on a thorough assessment of the risks so they can make an informed choice.
