The course’s focus is on practical implementation of the Project Management Institute’s (PMI’s) Risk Management processes. The instruction approach includes lectures, a running case study, and hands‐on class exercises in which the students apply the tools, techniques, and guidelines they are taught in class. Extensive use of documented lessons‐learned from other projects and in‐class exercises provide for active student involvement and practical use of course content. A sample risk management plan and a set of generic information system project risk factors are provided. These tools can be used by the participant to develop an individualized risk management plan for their business.
