Full course description
Projects are very complex. Risk is a part of every project and impossible to remove entirely. But failing to adequately identify, prioritize and manage risks is why projects fail. Project teams can identify potential project risks at the beginning and develop appropriate risk mitigation plans. Failing to adequately plan for risk (through financial and time contingencies) during the planning phase will lead to higher costs and delays during later phases.
