Risk Management



Risk Management can be described as an uncertain event or condition that, if it occurs, has a positive or negative effect on a project’s objectives.  To a Project Manager, this is a fundamental and core practice within the project life cycle. Every project experiences risk; but how risk is understood, identified and managed can help pave the way to success.6-PDU-LOGO-WEB
