Course Description

This online instructor-led course explores quantitative and qualitative techniques to identify and analyze project risk factors (risk event, event probability, and event impact). A variety of risk response choices are discussed, and risk identification and risk response are practiced in workshop groups. Quantitative techniques are applied to problems, but don’t worry, advanced mathematics is not used!
