Dear Friend, Risk management is the identification, assessment, and prioritization of risks (defined in ISO 31000 as the effect of uncertainty on objectives, whether positive or negative) followed by coordinated and economical application of resources to minimize, monitor, and control the probability and/or impact of unfortunate events or to maximize the realization of opportunities.
Risks can come from uncertainty in financial markets, project failures, legal liabilities, credit risk, accidents, natural causes and disasters as well as deliberate attacks from an adversary.
Corporations are fighting to survive in these lean economic times.
According to industry research, 60-80% of project failures can be attributed directly to poor management.
Poor risk management is a huge obstacle in the way of a successful project.
To avoid this, the project manager must first determine how the client or the project sponsor defines risk--and then follow suit.
The purpose of risk management is to first understand the expectations of the client in terms of risk, and then put a proactive plan and process in place to meet or exceed those expectations.
It is no surprise then, that demand is at an all time high for qualified PROJECT MANAGERS who can truly and proactively identify risks and manage them BEFORE they become issues.
In this course, you will:
Learn how to develop or improve the risk management programs at your workplace.
Learn and apply project risk management best practices and leave with a PMBOK-complaint methodology for applying risk management to your own projects.
Use a Risk Management Plan to document and structure a thoughtful approach to project risk management.
Gain insight into applying risk planning, risk identification, risk qualification, risk quantification, risk response and risk control to real-world projects.
Ensure project success by identifying and handling risks.
Learn how to avoid unnecessary costs and schedule delays and how to keep your team members focused on critical-path activities.
Through hands-on exercises, you'll identify common risks, threats, and opportunities and turn them into manageable possibilities.
Learn to capitalize on opportunities that can accelerate your project.
Master the building blocks of successful risk management: identify, qualify, quantify, strategize, and control.
This course offers the skills you need to be a proactive risk manager; one who plans for contingencies and confidently manages unexpected events that occur throughout the project life cycle.

Section 2: About Project Initiation - The initiation processes determine the nature and scope of the project. If this stage is not performed well, it is unlikely that the project will be successful in meeting the business need. The key project controls needed here are an understanding of the business environment and making sure that all necessary controls are incorporated into the project. Any deficiencies should be reported and a recommendation should be made to fix them.
Section 3: About Risk Planning - A risk is an uncertain event or condition that has the potential to have a positive or negative impact on the success of a project. Every project has risks associated with it, from the time the project begins until the time it ends. Project risks can affect such aspects as scope, time, cost, and quality. Risk management involves identifying potential risks and mitigating them to avoid or minimize adverse effects. It also involves developing contingency plans to deal with these risks. In addition, the process helps to focus on the positive results or opportunities generated by risks. Risk management is not a separate project activity assigned to the risk management department but is an inherent project management task. Risk management is also a proactive, rather than reactive, task.
|Richard, simply put, is an expert in communicating business skills and wisdom. His class was designed to identify and mitigate risk in projects, but the real value was on understanding and speaking to the concerns of senior management in terms that executives recognize and respond to. He brings real-world experience, broad knowledge, and a passion for helping people gain the insight and skills to be successful. I highly recommend him as valuable resource to anyone looking to uplevel their business acumen and opportunities |

Section 4: About Risk Identification - After risk planning, risk identification is the next and most crucial step in risk management. Risk identification involves recognizing and listing the threats or problems and the opportunities that might affect project objectives. The risks and their characteristics are then documented to begin the overall risk management plan. Risk identification is an iterative process, which can be completed by the project manager, the project team, a risk management team, and even technical experts. You start the process after getting the commitment for the project from the project team and all stakeholders. In the process, you need to identify both threats and opportunities arising from the risks. Risk identification determines project success or failure. If you do not clearly identify risks and document them, it can be difficult to resolve them. In addition, you need to understand the cause and effect of each risk to develop effective strategies to manage it.
Section 5: About Risk Qualification - Qualitative risk analysis prioritizes project risks based on their probability of occurrence, their corresponding impact on project objectives, and other factors. This analysis is typically rapid and cost-effective. It is revisited throughout the life cycle of a project and helps in developing a risk response plan. It also creates a foundation for quantitative risk analysis, if it is required.
Section 6: About Risk Quantification - After qualitative risk analysis, you perform quantitative risk analysis on those risks deemed to potentially and substantially affect the project demand. Quantitative risk analysis is a more in-depth analysis of risks that employs several mathematical or statistical tools to assign a numerical rating to each risk. These techniques model a particular risk situation based on probability distribution, which can be continuous or discrete.
|Richard conducted at three day course on Project Risk Management at VMware in March 2010. The class was very well run and Richard brought many personal experiences and stories to liven up what many regard as "dry" course material. My key take way from his class was how to better communicate and manage "up" to project sponsors in different phases of a project. |

Section 7: About Risk Strategies - Risk response planning focuses on defining actions to take if a risk is encountered. The goal is to enhance opportunities and reduce threats to a project?s objectives. This process identifies and assigns risks to individuals or groups (called the risk response owners), who agree to take responsibility for each agreed risk response. The more effective your risk response strategy, the more successful your project will be, with a decreased overall project risk.
Section 8: About Risk Control - Risk responses, detailed in the project management plan, are executed throughout a project?s life cycle. Project work is monitored continuously for new or changing risks. This process involves using techniques, such as variance analysis and trend analysis, that require performance data generated during project execution. The process requires participation from the project manager, the project team, key stakeholders, and risk owners within the project.

Onsite training is becoming more and more common today as organizations are looking for ways to train their personnel without having to pay for travel.
The prevalence of computers today have made onsite training easier than ever before.
There are many advantages to this type of training that benefit not only the organization but also the employee who is being trained.
One of the primary benefits is the ability to be trained in an environment that is familiar.
Many studies have shown that people who are trained in a familiar environment learn better than those who are in an unfamiliar environment.
When you are able to learn in a familiar environment the student will be better able to focus on the new material instead of their surroundings.
In addition, having training onsite is preferential because of the cost savings.
Instead of paying to send people to receive training elsewhere, organizations are choosing to train onsite because it saves a lot of money.
Even if the organization has to pay for people to come to them or has to pay for a program, this is usually much more affordable than paying for several people to travel whenever training is necessary.
Why not you?
Don't you owe it to yourself to try ..The Risk Management Essentials Onsite Training Course.. today?

P.S. Training Pays Off...Particularly When Times Are Tough
Studies show that training has a positive impact on performance, for both students and their companies.
Benefits of training include maintaining a competitive position, improving quality and productivity, and increasing employee retention and morale.
Research also shows that training is even more important during times of economic stress.
During these times, companies pay extra attention to every dollar spent and every dollar made.
This is especially true for IT organizations, where technology advances at a gallop and the cost of keeping up is relentlessly weighed against potential productivity gains.
Companies must maximize their return on IT hardware and software investments.
Performance must be finely tuned.
Employees must have the skills to get the most out of their organizations network, applications, data centers, operating systems, managed services, and other IT infrastructures.
P.P.S Get Reimbursed For Training
Its All About Value
You know you need training; the trick today is how to pay for it and work it into your demanding schedule.
Staffing and budgets are flat or declining, but the IT workload is rising. Yet even with todays lean budgets, many IT professionals are getting the valuable training they need by locating training funds hidden in the most interesting places.
You can, too.
Many companies offer tuition reimbursement programs for their employees.
These companies view continuing education as a plus for the companys bottom line.
Employees who keep up their knowledge and skills tend to be more productive; employees working in a company that fosters employee growth tend to be more loyal to that company.
How To Determine Whether Your Company Offers Tuition Reimbursement
Considered an employee benefit, tuition reimbursement programs are often managed by the human resources (HR) department. In some cases, they may be tied to each departments training budget.
Talk with your manager or your HR office to see if your company has a tuition program.
Program requirements vary from company to company, so review the requirements carefully.
Some corporate policies state that reimbursement is available only as part of a degree program; some require a letter certifying course completion; and some have a golden handcuffs clause that requires repayment if you leave the company within a certain timeframe after your reimbursed training.
There can also be restrictions in that the reimbursement amount is tied to the letter grade received on the course.
