Course Description:

An introduction to civil project risk management that enables a team to identify, classify and manage risk systematically for the duration of a project, taking full account of corporate aims in order to control the probability and mitigate the impact of an adverse risk event.

The overall aim of this course is to enable participants to plan, manage and control project risks. Moreover, participants will be able to develop a project risk management plan and identify civil project risks related to the project's triple constraints which are: scope, schedule and resources. The course also aims at assisting participants in qualifying and quantifying civil project risks and developing appropriate risk responses. In line with the above, participants will also design and calculate key performance indicators for monitoring and controlling civil project risks.
