Risk Management

Understand why threats and opportunities are part of all projects and that the risks structured perception improves projects’ outcomes.

To qualify the students in the strategic risks management, presenting the main mechanisms for the risk identification, quantification, responses development and control.

The course also aims to contextualize the risks in the projects environment, providing tools and simulators that are used in their management.

Training content

At the end of the course the student will be able to:

  • Understand the double risks nature (threats and opportunities)
  • Establish practical mechanisms to control the risks involved in a project
  • Complete the risks’ basic details
  • Use the 7 techniques for the risks identification
  • Qualitatively analyze and prioritize the risks
  • Simulate time and cost results through Monte Carlo Simulation
  • Calculate the probability and estimate the risks impacts
  • Plan and calculate the contingency reserves and the management reserves
  • Scale different responses to the threats and opportunities
  • Monitor the risks and establish responses effective "triggers"
