Risk Management Workshop

8:30am-4:30pm Central Time

In this half-day simulation-style workshop, participants have the opportunity to work in small groups on a sample project, picking up with the “risk brainstorm” activity introduced in the project management essentials class. With that first risk list as a starting point, we then proceed with skill practice on the following tasks:

  1. Prioritization of the risks based on the ones from the risk brainstorm exercise
  2. Discovery of the risks we don’t quite understand
  3. Discussion around the risks where we don’t have alignment or agreement
  4. Talking about quantitative risk analysis when possible
  5. Creating solution options for the top priority risks
  6. Assigning risk owners, and ensuring buy-in to that role
  7. Identifying and naming risk triggers

Each simulation includes a table-based workshop, a debrief and discussion including a chance to reflect on how to apply the learnings from the situation to the current and future projects on your radar.

By attending this course, participants will:

  • Practice stating, evaluating, and prioritizing risks
  • Practice having uncomfortable conversations around risk
  • Practice identifying risk owners, risk triggers, risk categories, and multiple risk responses
  • Identify actionable ways to improving risk management on current and future projects
