Risk Management Program

About Instructor


Research work has proved that project performance is considerably improved through the use of Risk Management. This is simply because 70 to 90% of the problems encountered on projects are predictable and preventable. Risk analyses at the onset of any project will high light these problems and increase the chances to complete the project successfully. It will also enable Project Managers to reduce the time they spend fighting fires.
