You've Got Way TOO Many Issues
Project Managers realize that they must manage risks and issues in a timely and effective manner. However, many project teams do not practice effective and continuous risk management throughout the project life cycle, preferring to wait until the risk becomes realized, and becomes an issue, before taking any action. This presentation will discuss the differences between Project Risk Management and Issues Management and review some tools and best practices that make both jobs more effective. It will also cover some techniques and recommendations for applying these tools.
The objective of this presentation is show the difference between risks and issues, how to best develop the effective mindset and attitude to deal with them, learn risk management best practices, as well as risk management tools and techniques to apply consistent risk management throughout the project, and learn issue management best practices, and some effective tools for identifying, assessing and controlling issues on a project.
