Project Risk Management Training

About this course

Every project, irrespective of its size or complexity, contains risk. How this risk is assessed and managed is crucial to project delivery and may ultimately determine the success or failure of the project.

Our practical 1-day workshop provides the essential skills, techniques and concepts to assist the successful management of project risk, ensuring that subsequent business returns are maximised.
