By using a real life project as the workshop test case it will allow the attendees to work collectively to identify the Risk items and to develop usable mitigation plans that could be utilized to minimize the impact of the identified risk.

The workshop will take the Risk Management processes as identified in the PMBOK® and dissect it into PMBOK Process groups: Risk Management planning, Risk Identification, Risk Analysis, Risk Response planning, Qualitative and Quantitative Analysis, Risk Monitoring and Control processes. In addition the tools that will assist the Project Manager in ensuring the project risks are mitigated or exploited to increase the success of the overall project will be discussed.

This workshop will take an actual real-life project that would be encountered in a common Telecommunications Network Infrastructure deployment project as the class case study. By utilizing a case study it will allow the workshop attendees to use their understanding of the presented materials as well as input from the other attendees to analyze the impacts and to develop a risk mitigation plan for the identified risks.
