Session Topic: Dealing with Risks Collaboratively

Description: Are you tired of dealing with unexpected project setbacks and delays? Are you looking for practical strategies to mitigate risks and ensure project success? Look no further! In our upcoming presentation, we will dive deep into the world of risk management and equip you with the tools you need to identify, assess, and address project risks collaboratively.

Combining approaches from PRINCE2 and PMBOK, we will explore the use of a risk register, detail impact matrix, detail probability matrix, and risk questionnaire. We will also highlight the importance of risk management in achieving shared goals and ensuring project success.

By attending this presentation, you will develop practical skills in risk management strategy creation and application. You will walk away with a clear understanding of how to effectively manage risks in your projects, and the confidence to apply these strategies in your day-to-day work.

Time permitting, at the end of the presentation, we will go through how to harness ChatGPT's AI prowess to identify project risk with ease and create mitigation approaches to achieve project success

Don't miss out on this opportunity to improve your risk management skills and take your project management career to the next level. Sign up now to secure your spot and join us for an engaging and informative session.
