Advanced Project Risk Management

Introduction

Project Risk Management lies at the very core of successful project delivery. Project failure results in the failure to achieve the organisation’s financial and strategic objectives, often with sizable increases in project cost and with substantial financial losses to the organisation. Accordingly, the systematic identification and quantification of project risks, as well as the development of detailed risk treatment strategies to mitigate all relevant risks that threaten the intended outcomes of the project, are essential to the achievement of project success.

PROCLAD Academy’s 5-day training course on Advanced Project Risk Management will enable delegates to apply the tools and techniques of modern project risk management effectively in order to deal with a wide variety of risks and uncertainties related to the project. The training course does not assume any prior knowledge of the topics covered. New concepts and tools are introduced gradually to enable participants to progress from the fundamental to the advanced concepts of project risk management.

The key features of PROCLAD Academy’s Advanced Project Risk Management training course are:

  • Identifying risk categories related to your organisation’s operations and projects
  • Identifying project-specific risks and uncertainties related to design, planning, operation and maintenance
  • Using a proven set of skills and techniques for the quantification, analysis and mitigation of identified risks
  • Developing a systematic and dynamic Risk Management Plan
Learning Objectives

By attending PROCLAD Academy’s Advanced Project Risk Management training course, delegates will learn how to:

  • Identify project-specific risks and uncertainties related to project design, planning, execution and operation
  • Identify technical parameters, specifications and the project schedule
  • Use qualitative and quantitative methods to assess the exposure of the project to particular risks in real and measurable financial terms
  • Prioritise and rank risks in order to deal with them systematically
  • Apply the concept of expected monetary value to develop adequate contingency levels
  • Employ the six primary risk treatment strategies to develop pro-active responses to potential risks
  • Apply a dynamic risk mitigation process to reduce the risk profile to comply with organizational thresholds
