Projects by their nature are uncertain and are guaranteed to change. Even projects that have been planned well will fail unless you can effectively identity and analyze risk and stakeholder issues.

Managing the uncertainties can be a critical aspect of project success. Learn to reduce negative risk exposure in your projects and enhance opportunities by using effective risk management and procurement practices. Learn the specific processes of risk management and procurement management as defined by the Project Management Institute in A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (Sixth Edition), the industry standard.

In this course, you'll learn how to account for uncertainty, risks and unforeseen issues. Identify potential threats, determine the impact of the threat and develop a risk management strategy by quantifying and prioritizing project risks. Learn to effectively manage project procurements, those undertaken in response to project risks, as well as those undertaken to provide other needed products and services. Learn the various phases of the procurement management process and how to work effectively with contracting managers, purchasing professionals and subcontractors to accomplish key project objectives. Define procurement requirements and evaluate bids and proposals. Gain skills to successfully negotiate a contract agreement and manage the resulting vendor relationship. Learn effective courses of action to ensure contractors or subcontractors perform as required under the contract. Know the best practices for closing out contracts. 

Through interactive exercises, you'll learn to acquaint you with risk registers, qualitative and quantitative methods of analyzing risk and effective risk response planning.
