NEW! From Threat to Opportunity: Risk Management for Difficult Times with Ivan Rincon

What You Will Learn

Upon completion of this training, learners will be able to:

  • Describe the underlying principles of risk management in a business context.
  • Practically apply risk management concepts in the context of projects, programs, and portfolios.
  • Design risk management capabilities in organizations, and more specifically, in organizations managing projects.


In the current world, uncertainty is the norm. As we have moved from complex transformation initiatives to a pandemic, to an ever-changing business environment, initiatives (projects) are also more difficult to predict. Our traditional approach of focusing on threats is not good enough.

This 1-day training provides a clear understanding of the principles behind risk management, how to apply those principles in the context of the profession’s best practices, and how the organization can benefit from a more wholesome approach to look at uncertainty as a source of opportunity.

  • The Risk Management Process in Projects, Programs, and Portfolios
