Certification Level I: SPOC Risk Management in Development Projects
Sometimes we see project teams that invest a great deal of their time and effort in solving problems instead of preventing them. Risk management is an area of knowledge in project management that aims to reduce the likelihood and impact of negative events, and increase those of positive events. But how can we identify risks in uncertain scenarios? With whom do we carry out this task? How do we know which risks have to be managed in environments with limited resources? What strategies exist to respond to positive or negative events that appear in a project? How do we know that there are new risks? These and other questions will be discussed with the tutor in this course on risk management in development projects. You will have the opportunity to share your knowledge and experience with team members of other projects, solve practical cases that will help you understand key concepts.
