About the Book
A Short Guide to Facilitating Risk Management: Engaging People to Identify, Own and
Manage Risk by Penny Pullman and Ruth Murray-Webster (2011)
(Current price is under $39.95 for hardback plus shipping on Amazon or $31.16 for the kindle. The book may also be available from your local library.)
If you need to make sound decisions in important but risky situations; work with groups to identify, prioritize and respond to risks, deliver value and, along the way, ensure the credibility of the process and the resilience of your organization, A Short Guide to Facilitating Risk Management sets out a very practical approach to how the risk management process can deliver value through effective facilitation. It brings together Ruth Murray-Webster's expertise in the human aspects of risk and risk attitude and Penny Pullan's wide experience of the facilitation of project workshops to cover five main areas: * avoiding pitfalls - how to make sure you are better prepared, better able to use your knowledge with groups and better able to avoid unsupported or skewed results; * an understanding of risk management - to refresh your own knowledge and provide the basis for knowledge and ideas you can share with your group(s); * understanding your role - whether you are a full-time facilitator or a line manager with the need to improve risk management, you'll learn the skills you need and gain an understanding of how best to develop them; * tried and tested tips for each step of the risk management process - proven practices showing how you can use the right mix of workshops, small groups and individual work to keep people engaged and get results; * running risk workshops - the whole area of making workshops work.

Reston, VA, 20190
5:30pm - 6:30pm: Open book discussion
Free meeting for Chapter members.
Preregistration, reading the book before the meeting, and bringing a copy (e-book okay) of the book to the meeting is required.
You can purchase the book through Amazon. An E-book version is fine. It may also be available from your local library.
Based on the amount of time you will spend in self-directed study of negotiation – we estimate four to six hours of reading, which converts to 4 - 6 PDUs for qualified PMPs who are under the 30 PDU limit for their current three year certification cycle. Please note that these PDUs will need to be reported as Category C: Self-Directed Learning. For full details on PDU reporting refer to the PMP Handbook.
About the Member's Only Reston Book Club
The Reston Book Club is a forum for talking about books that touch on the widely varied challenges of project and program management. There is no Book Club membership. Any PMIWDC member can sign up to join our conversations. There are just three key requirements: preregistration, reading the book before the meeting, and bringing a copy of the book to the meeting. Note that you should sign up early as we limit the discussion to fifteen people so that everyone has a chance to share their opinion.
Come to the Book Club with an open mind and prepare to have your understanding adjusted as you hear about the book through the voices of your professional peers.
Studying project management and related topics through books is recognized and rewarded by PMI in PDUs, roughly on the basis of one hour of study equals one PDU. Continued certification as a PMP requires the accumulation of these valuable credits and we are pleased to offer this opportunity to obtain both the important training and the educational credit associated with it.
