In this course, author and PMP Bob McGannon shows you how to anticipate, assess, and manage project risk—whether your project is large or small. Discover how to gauge your stakeholders' tolerance for risk, assemble a risk plan, build a risk register, and maintain project continuity as risks crop up.

As project managers, we need to focus on project risks as they can reduce your ability to achieve your project goals, if not derail your project altogether.

Next, I will describe how to identify the risks on your project using various methods to help ensure you get a complete set of risks for your project. We will then talk about how to write crisp, clear, and useful risk records, and how to categorize your risks to manage them efficiently.
