The ability to anticipate and mitigate or remove project obstacles or take advantage of opportunities is key to delivering highly successful projects. 

As you step through the 2 comprehensive case studies, you’ll get hands-on practice of the 6 steps of the Project Risk Management process and integrate those steps within the requirements lifecycle activities.  according to the approach chosen, whether Predictive (Waterfall), iterative/incremental, and Adaptive (Agile/Scrum) approach. 

Skill Level: Intermediate
