Many Strategies, programs, projects and operational initiatives fail to achieve their desired objectives due to adverse impacts of risks outside of management control and poor management of them. While you cannot fully eliminate or control risks, applying strong Risk Management practices helps you to ensure mitigating, transferring or avoiding risks and their impacts on your initiatives and to capitalize on opportunities as they arise.

This interactive and highly engaging workshop provides a solid Risk foundation based on best practices and better understanding of risks and opportunities, sources and categories of risks, risk planning, analyzing risks to define their probability and impact on your initiatives, develop risk response strategies, and monitor and control risks as you progress. It provides managers and supervisors with a robust Risk Management framework and the tools to tackle risks in any organizational program, project, operational initiative or developing a new strategy, resulting in higher success rates for you and your organization.
