If you don’t attack project risks, they will attack you! Learn intermediate and advanced strategies you can use on both general and project-specific risks. Discover how to identify, address, and eliminate sources of risk before they grow into major problems. This course focuses on intermediate and advanced strategies you can use to manage general risks and details practical techniques you can use to control your project’s specific risks.
