Anticipating Project Risks

Topic: Project Management

Projects often involve new and complex tasks. As a result, one of the project manager’s main responsibilities is to limit, as much as possible, the exposure of the project to events that place it under threat.

To do this, project managers must perform certain activities, along with their team, to:

  • anticipate and manage any risks that put the project in jeopardy.
  • involve the members of the project team in reducing risks.

This is a 2-part module.

Part A Learning objectives:

Using a practical case study, understand a structured approach to identifying and assessing potential risks for your project. There will be explanatory videos, interactive activities and quizzes to take you through the process step by step:

What our clients say about us – Berendsen

We had already put in place LEAD Development Centres for our senior leader group, and it was very important to introduce Centres that would work for our large population of Plant Managers across Europe. Cegos have been excellent partners in helping us get the design right, and then in the delivery of lively, action learning based programmes. I have greatly enjoyed seeing our managers have ‘light bulb’ moments!
