This online training course provides participants with tools and techniques to proactively identify and respond to risks within their own project environment. Uncertainty is inherent in any type of project, particularly so within research, making it difficult to plan. This uncertainty is called risk.
This webinar focuses on considering and addressing risks and uncertainty at the very initial planning stages and using all of the Project Planning artefacts (introduced in other webinars) as methods of identifying potential threats or opportunities. It also introduces new techniques to unearth problems proactively in advance of them occurring

By the end of this webinar participants will have:
• Learned various techniques for identifying sources of potential issues and risks in their projects
• Understood what makes a well-formatted risk
• Considered methods for assessing the likelihood and impact of project risks
• Learned methods for dealing with unacceptable risks proactively
• Been shown how to calculate and integrate contingency into their plans for acceptable risks
• Applied the techniques shown to a risk register for their own project

This is the second required module for individuals who wish to become a Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM®). More information can be found here.
