Course synopsis

The unique challenges of IT projects make it mandatory an IT project manager be a skilled risk manager. Risk will always exist in IT projects given the need to deal with challenging requirements and expectations, complex and ever-changing technologies and business needs, and aggressive schedules and budgets to support business success. However, it is not inevitable that risk management will be an impossible task that will result in your being viewed as reactive, or worse, unresponsive.

In IT Risk Management, delegates learn to look at risk management as a way to seize opportunities, minimise threats and achieve optimum results by working through the proactive approach to threat and opportunity— based on a clear understanding of the powerful nature of both qualitative and quantitative approaches to risk management.

Using effective tools, including Strategy Execution’s highly regarded risk assessment model, attendees learn how to evaluate and respond to risk at the project and task levels as well as how to apply these tools to analyse and classify risks, determine how to establish an acceptable level of risk and develop a practical risk response plan.

A multi-part case study takes participants from a risk overview at the beginning of an IT project through the challenges of ongoing assessment and reassessment of threats and opportunities throughout the project. They will leave this course prepared to face the challenges and opportunities of risk management and with new practices to apply in their own environment as well as new insights on the implications and advantages of applying risk management well.
