This course explains the project risk management process from risk planning and assumptions analysis to risk monitoring and control. The course covers the following risk management processes: risk planning, risk identification, qualitative and quantitative risk management techniques, risk response planning, and risk monitoring and control. Essential risk management tools, such as Event Breakdown Structure, Sensitivity Analysis, Risk/Opportunity Matrix, Monte-Carlo Simulation, Decision Tree Analysis, and Fault and Event Trees, will be explained. Attendees will be required to participate in class exercises as well as individual and group work.

Course Objectives

Upon successful completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the content of a Risk Management Plan for a typical Multi-Disciplinary Engineering Project,
  • Develop a risk breakdown structure, using different techniques and understand how to identify risks for inclusion in the Risk Register,
  • Use risk prioritization techniques to rank project risks,
  • Apply quantitative techniques to determine project contingency,
  • Plan project risk responses, and monitor and control significant risks and implement proper mitigation strategies,

Course Schedule

  • Introduction to Project Risk Management: definitions, concepts, and applications,
  • Plan Risk Management: inputs to planning risks, risk planning tools and techniques, identify defective risk management plans, probability and impact scales, risk threshold and stakeholders’ tolerance, risk owners, risk register, warning signs, and exercises,
  • Identify Risks: risk breakdown structure, risk identification tools and techniques, create your risk register group exercise,
  • Perform Qualitative Risk Analysis: inputs requirement, qualitative analysis tools and techniques, risk prioritization, risk register update, group exercise: Probability-Impact Matrix creation for a risky project,
  • Perform Quantitative Risk Analysis: inputs requirements, quantitative risk analysis tools and techniques (Monte Carlo Simulation, Expected Monetary Value Analysis, Decision Tree Analysis, and Fault Tree Analysis), fault tree exercise,
  • Plan Project Risk Responses: avoidance, mitigation, passive acceptance, proactive acceptance, transfer, examples, and case study exercise, and
  • Monitor and Control Project Risks: main inputs, tools and techniques, and outputs.
