Managing Project Risk

A guide for project managers and executives | taught by Roelf Woldring

Course description

Projects fail. Often they do so because the project stakeholders do not have a common understanding of the risks that could throw the project off track. But it is possible to “identify, anticipate and mitigate” the risks that are likely to have a negative impact on project progress.

Great business sponsors and project managers recognize this. They implement a project risk management process that engages all of the key stakeholders and creates this “identify, anticipate, and mitigate" approach to managing project risks.  This framework is the result of many years of doing so successfully. It has proven itself again and again on all kinds and sizes of projects.

See how to implement this approach on your project or in your organization.

I have been involved e-learning since the 1980's, when the IT organizations I led started to add just in time help and learning sub-systems to the software applications we were building for our users.

I have managed more professionals than I can count. Over the years, I have learned a lot about leading and managing talented creative people. Many of my teachers were the skilled individuals who worked for me. I am very thankful for all that they taught me.

I took doctoral level in organizational psychology later in my career, when I realized that I was not managing technology but PEOPLE who used technology to deliver services to our business customers. I was always more interested in doing than teaching then. So I went back to the work place at the tail end of my doctoral programs (twice), rather than finalizing my dissertations.  At the tail end of my career, I am now devoted to teaching, when I have the experience to know what really works. 

I know (all three forms: know that, know how and know why) about managing, hiring, deploying and developing talented people.

I was an early Internet champion. I have been active on the Internet since the 90's. I have been involved in deploying personal and commercial web sites and programs.

I am passionate about the future of e-learning. I believe that e-learning will have as great an impact on the future of our world as the telephone and the car did in their days.

I am translate what I know - from years of practical experience filtered through the best research and writing about people in the work place - into e-learning courses that will help you:

"Be the Best Team Player and Manager of Others That You Can Be"
