Risk management is a process used for the identification, assessment and analysis of potential risks to an organization or project. This process enables you to develop the most appropriate risk response.

In the Risk Management for Projects course, you will learn the fundamentals of risk management, as well as how to apply a risk management process in a project-based setting. Risk management is an iterative process and you will learn how adopting key procedures can help you maximize opportunities and minimize negative impact on your project objectives.

In this course, you will further upskill through the application of the risk management canvas, which is a framework that enables you to manage risk within your own environment. It will immerse you in the concepts of risk management and help you to apply the key processes.

Practical activities through the course will allow you to apply the knowledge you learn as each week focuses on a key stage of the risk management process. The theories and practices taught in the course can easily be applied to any project, organization or business environment.

Risk Management for Projects is brought to you by the same team that developed the highly successful Introduction to Project Management MOOC, and builds on risk management for projects introduced in that course.

Participating in this course will ensure that you gain the know-how to reduce your project and organizational risk in the future.
