Event Detail

WIB-National Webinar "Risky Business: Mitigating Risk in the Life Sciences," April 12, 2017

From 1:00 PM TO 2:00 PM

All projects present risk, and successful project managers recognize that it is vital not to avoid risks, but to understand them. Risk management is the process of identifying, assessing, mitigating, and controlling the known risks in order to increase the probability of meeting your project objectives. By planning for unexpected events, you can be ready to respond if they arise. This session will bring to light the importance of Risk Management, and introduce methods and tools that can be implemented to ensure a successful risk management process. This webinar will utilize a slide presentation and will review specific examples to help illustrate the key concepts of Risk Management. The presentation will help you understand how to identify what can go wrong, how to assess a risk events probability and impact, and what to do to lessen the probability or impact of a risk event occurring. Real-world examples and considerations from the speaker’s professional experience will be highlighted during the webinar. In addition, there will be time allotted for questions and answers at the conclusion of the webinar.

This course will result in up to one hour of PMI-approvable Professional Development Units (PDUs) for the project management field.
