Risk Management


Risk management is a process which provides assurance that objectives are more likely to be achieved; damaging things will not happen or are less likely to happen; beneficially things will be or are more likely to be achieved. It is not a process for avoiding risk. The aim of risk management is not to eliminate risk, rather to manage the risks involved in all University activities to maximize opportunities and minimize adverse effects.

In this course, you will learn how to proactively reduce the probability of project failure, to implement proven approaches and techniques specific to risk management. You will learn to plan and analyze projects so as to minimize risk. You will identify, analyze, and address uncertainty throughout the project lifecycle and incorporate lessons learned and industry best practices related to risk management.
