Main Presentation:

Title: Dynamic Risk Management

Speaker: Lisa Hammer and David Newman

Risk management is one of the most critical areas of project management and yet it is often overlooked or undervalued – until it’s too late! This discussion will focus on the necessity for an ongoing risk management process. Creation of a risk register is the beginning of the process, but what happens to the risk register once it exists? Who sees it? Who can add to it? How do we know when an item can be safely removed or deprioritized? When new risk items are exposed, how are they prioritized within the project management plan?

Join Lisa and Dave for a lively and interactive discussion about the importance and implementation of a continuous risk evaluation process.
