Module Description

Project risk management has evolved significantly over the past few years. This module provides an in-depth understanding of the best practices, as based on different views and on practitioners’ experiences.  The module will help you identify and analyse any risk that may arise over the course of a project’s lifecycle to keep the project on track and meet pre-determined goals. Managing risk isn’t merely a reactive approach; one should use the planning process to figure out what risks might occur during the execution phase.  

This module also examines risk management across different types of projects. With large-scale projects, risk management strategies might include extensively detailed planning to ensure mitigation strategies are in place. For smaller projects, risk management might mean a simple, prioritised list of high, medium and low risks.
