Risk Assesment

Ever been there? The project where we have to keep going to the client to ask for more money or more time, they are disappointed and maybe we have had vendors who disappoint us. What can help?

What about Risk Management? From building rockets at NASA to engineering marvels, all projects have a risk management component. Why not apply these best practice approaches to the world of design?

In this 1.5-2-hour session, we will cover: identifying different types of risk, the dangers of assumptions, how to prioritize risks, how to develop risk strategies and how to be more proactive rather than reactive in planning for uncertainties. This is really all about meeting client expectations.

Some benefits that you will realize immediately include:

  • Everyone will know what risks could be encountered on the project

  • You will have a plan to get things back on track when problems arise

  • You will feel more in control and less like you are constantly “putting out fires”
