Fit for Risks in your project work

In your private life you plan your vacation carefully. You take action for unforeseen occurrences. You consult your doctor, ask for precautionary medicine, you take out a travel cancellation insurance and an international travel insurance. To be prepared for the unpleasent case you get robbed you copied your passport and you transport the copy separately together with a second credit card.
But how much time and effort are you spending for risk management during your project work?

Target group:

You are project coordinator /project- or program manager and want your projects to become more successful. Constantly your telephone is ringing and your team members are asking for your help in finding a solution for a problem that has arisen short notice and unexpectedly. Your project business consists of reacting instead of acting.

You would like to identify risks and opportunities earlier, in order to reduce the consequences of risks and seize the opportunities more effectively. Applied risk management is an important key factor for successful projects.

Targets of training:

The participants will

  • get an understanding about the different kinds and categories of risks,
  • learn how to implement risk management according to the basis of the four a methodology called the 4E in German (can be explained by “4Ds”: Detect, Develop, Determine, Decide),
  • learn how to use methodologies (Delphi technology, SWOT, Ishikawa, et alii) for risk identification,
  • learn how to create a riskmatrix via qualitative risk analysis (probability versus impact),
  • learn to create a risk tree as decision basis by preparing monetary, quantitative risk analysis,
  • learn to know how to monitor and control risks,
  • learn how to use the “Monte Carlo Technics” (what if) for simulating risks,
  • be able to react on the effect of risks effectively.

The seminar:

While you are attending the training you will be a member of a team for a virtual project. Risk management is used interactively with the participants in the different project process groups.

During the training we will switch between theoretical knowledge transfer and practical exercises of the learned know-how as part of a simulated project meeting.

You try to identify risks during initiating and planning processes, you decide on risks and opportunities on the basis of monetary risk evaluation methodology. Moreover, you will learn about opportunities for identifying and easing risks at an early stage.


The course instructor is certified PMP® with several years of experience in project management and as head of a project management office (PMO) in a world-wide operating industry group.
