Projects are inherently risky ventures. If there is no risk, the activity may not be a project. In this programme, you will learn that risk is identified, assessed and minimised in the project planning exercise. A project plan consists basically of six things, project objectives (requirements, SOW), a work breakdown (WBS), a project organisation (OBS), a project schedule, project baseline (budget) and risk management.
