Risk Management, PMC-005:

Ignoring risks does not make them go away! Imagine preventing 90 percent of your project problems. How much could you improve project quality, cost, and schedule? Risk management is a project management methodology that includes risk planning, identification, qualification, risk response development, and control. Business and project managers need to understand what risks they face and adopt strategies for incorporating those opportunities into effective project management. This course includes techniques from international risk research and worldwide contributors, templates you can adapt and use in your projects, hundreds of risks and risk categories to help you identify risks, and a methodology to prevent many project problems. Project managers, project team members, technical staff, and mangers can benefit from the risk management techniques and templates in this course. Since the course also covers the basics of risk management, it is also useful for those preparing for the PMI® certification exams.
