- is a one day course aimed at any functional department or team who are interested in increasing their understanding of risk and how it can be managed within either a project or operational environment. During a packed day they will learn some of the fundamental aspects of risk identification, analysis, decision making, contingency aportionment and optimal approaches to mitigation. Participants will complete the day more confident in fully understanding risk and how it can be effectively managed to create a more efficient task delivery through greater optimisation of contingency.


Delegates will learn how to take a structured approach to identifying risks from a case study project. A structured approach will be used to demonstrate how effective particular methods can be. Reference will be made to a wide range of identification techniques as outlined in the APM PRAM Guide, essential reading for any risk practitioner.

Once the risks have been identified it is important to ensure that the best form of analysis is performed. Firstly the full spectrum of qualitative analysis will be demonstrated, taking the risks that have already been identified as an example. Secondly quantitative analysis will be performed using computer software and Monte Carlo Analysis. No need to worry if your statistical knowledge is a little thin on the ground, our workshop facilitators have great ways of explaining the most complicated methods, in an interesting and fun way. Yes, that's right...statistics can be fun!

Once risks have been analysed it is then important to ensure that this informaiton is put to good use to optimise targeted performance in both budget and schedule. Delegates learn and experience active decision making through a realistic case study mini project which has all the characteristics of a typical organisational project.

Simple response techniques are discussed and the effect on a simulated project is demonstrated. Some of the opportunities and threats concerning the implementation of formal risk management process are discussed including some of the psychological issues that can often impede implementation.

The day concludes with a review of the current risk management certification standards and the recently established competency framework for risk management specifically.
