Professional Risk Management

  • How project risks become success factors

Taking risks is an indispensable part of innovative and successful project work. These can be significantly reduced with little effort through a professionally operated risk management system. At the same time, you also increase the chances for your project success in a targeted manner.

Currently we only conduct this seminar in-house. You too can benefit
from a tailor-made seminar. This is already worthwhile from 5 participants.


Is the danger averted at the same time as the risk is recognized? Especially in difficult project situations, the project manager needs a toolbox to turn risks into opportunities: In this seminar you will develop an early warning system for your project risks. You learn to recognize risks, to evaluate them and to manage or prevent them with the appropriate measures. With the help of contingency plans, you keep control even in project crises and steer your project safely past the iceberg.


You will be provided with practicable risk management strategies and methods to identify and consistently manage risks at an early stage. In the seminar you will practice the application to your own projects and tricky situations from everyday project life. In addition, you will receive suggestions to adequately influence risk awareness in your project environment. This way you sustainably increase the success of your projects and your company. The seminar is based on the recognized PMI® risk management standards. Certified participants receive 16 PDUs or a certificate of further education for IPMA.
