Project Risk Management & Compliance in Organizations


Risk is the main cause of uncertainty in any organization. Thus, companies increasingly focus more on identifying risks and managing them before they even affect the business. The ability to manage risk will help companies act more confidently on future business decisions. Their knowledge of the risks they are facing will give them various options on how to deal with potential problems.

Organizations face internal and external actors and influences that make it uncertain whether, when, and the extent to which they will achieve or exceed their objectives. The effect this uncertainty has on the organization’s objectives is risk.

Risk management is important in an organization because without it, a firm cannot possibly define its objectives for the future. If a company defines objectives without taking the risks into consideration, chances are that they will lose direction once any of these risks hit home.

 The highlights of this training course are:

  • Examine both the threats and opportunities facing your projects from both a top-down and bottom-up perspective using a proven six-step risk management process
  • Evaluate and respond to risk at the project as well as the task levels
  • Anticipate possible causes of cost and schedule overruns, together with poor quality of work. By identifying the warning signs to these as early as possible in the project timely corrective action can be taken to minimize or mitigate the impact

An issue facing most projects is compliance; with both internal corporate policy and with government regulations. Failure to properly proceed in this area can result in costly schedule and budget problems on a project.
