​Course Overview
The programme aims to equip the participant to successfully manage strategic and operational risk in the organisation by introducing a systematical approach to Risk Management. Furthermore,  this learning course helps participants prepare for the Project exam with the Risk Management Professional® PMI®.  
With the understanding of project Risk Management, according to the Project Management Body Guide – 6th Edition (PMBOK®), this course provides the skills to identify and measure risks in project development and implementation. You will learn to quantify risks and create risk response strategies to deliver projects that meet stakeholder expectations.
Target Group

This course is aimed at those who are engaged in the profession of Risk Management, i.e. Risk Managers, Project Managers and Line Managers.
