All PMs know that their projects contain risks. Consequently, we typically adjust our approaches based on that risk. Increasingly, PMs are asked to accept some risk and make process decisions based on their risk assessments. But what makes a project risky and how will that risk manifest itself in potential cost, schedule, and scope impacts? What type of “tolerance” does your sponsor or stakeholders have for risk in your project? If you don’t know, you will be handcuffed in decision making. This session examines a tool designed to help PMs assess the risks in their projects and quantify that risk. The tool also helps PMs take a consistent approach to risk assessment and enables them to communicate that risk to sponsors and stakeholders, based on actual industry data and research.
Bring your own lunch.
Evoke is located at 671 N Glebe Rd, Suite #1600, Arlington, VA, in the Ballston Mall. The Mall and the garage are currently under construction.
