Applied Risk Management for Construction Projects

January 26 @ 8:30 am - January 27 @ 4:00 pm

Applied Risk Management for Construction Projects

Intro: Risk is an integral part of every project. It is important to master how to predict and control risks. Most project managers are working in a reactive mode. They respond very quickly to problems and challenges, and they usually control them after the fact, just like fire fighters. Knowing how to predict and work in a proactive mode is a unique skill that is in demand by all construction companies. This is what this workshop is all about.

Workshop Description: This practical two-day workshop introduces participants to the concepts, principals, processes, and application of risk management to a construction project. The goal is to mitigate or minimize threats and maximize the capture of opportunities during all phases of the project’s life cycle. The workshop enables participants to control their projects (proactive) rather than the traditional approach where the projects are controlling them (reactive).

Workshop Objectives:
• Understand risk management issues and their impact on the project.
• Develop a detailed risk management plan to guide risk management activities.
• Perform effective qualitative and quantitative assessments of project risks.
• Develop a risk register that is complete and accurate.
• Prepare risk response strategies to control risks and maximize the opportunities.
• Develop office and field risk monitoring and control processes.

Who Should Attend: This workshop is an excellent opportunity for Project and Construction Managers, senior Line Management, and project team members.
