About the Presentation
Every project manager knows the Triple Constraints — some even know more than three! But there’s a lot more to the subject than the old joke “Did you want it good, fast, or cheap — pick two.” The envelope of project constraints has a profound effect on almost every aspect of project decision making, nowhere more profoundly than in the area of risk management. From risk identification to risk analysis to risk response planning, the nature and dynamics of your individual project necessarily shape your strategy — and limit your options.
In this insightful presentation, you’ll learn new techniques to manage risks in the project environment, additional strategies for risk response planning that go beyond “avoid, transfer, mitigate, accept,” and a host of practical strategies for taming the toughest challenges you’re likely to face as a project manager. You’ll gain a new understanding of the surprising connection between risk and quality, learn the advantages of multi-level outcome evaluation, and much more.
