The Ultimate Project Manager, Chapter 15: Managing Project Risks (RV-10439)

Start Date
End Date
The process of identifying and managing the various types of project risks has become especially important in today’s business environment, where all parties jump to legal action as the first step in resolving any dispute. Unfortunately, the design firm, your organization, is in the center of almost every dispute. The purpose of this course is to provide you with the methods and tools you will need to identify, manage, and mitigate risks in your projects.

In this course you will learn about three fundamental elements that limit a firm’s liability for project risks:
Identifying all potential types of risk that could impact the project
Assigning the management of each type of risk to the party who is best suited to manage/control the risk
Implementing a risk management plan to manage and/or mitigate the risk elements of each risk assigned to the design firm
