The Intuitive Risk Management workshop approaches risk management as something we all do, every day—and, it is important to us. Therefore, it can be transformed into a fundamental part of a project’s everyday activities.
This is a “how-to” workshop, using group-oriented techniques to create an integrated mechanism for improving project performance with better risk management. An introduction to intuitive risk management will help participants view risk differently, and will provide methods for developing and sustaining a meaningful risk list. The participants will use the techniques to come up with a prioritized risk list, and will develop mitigation plan(s) for the most important item(s). The risk management examples and exercises will be drawn from everyday activities—getting to work, managing your health, and real project work. Project teams and people from inside the same organization are encouraged to attend as a group, and to use this workshop as a real risk identification session.
Through a combination of instructor demonstrations and hands-on activities, participants will learn to view risk management as an intuitive activity that applies equally well to everyday life and to project management.
At the conclusion of the workshop, participants will:
- Identify how to approach Risk Management intuitively, both as part of everyday life and as part of project management.
- Have some quick, cost effective mechanisms for risk identification, categorization, and prioritization.
- Understand how outputs from retrospectives can be used as the basis of risk management for future projects, and as a catalyst for improvement efforts.
Target Audience: The intended audience is system developers, managers, and customers who want to improve their chances of project success.
