Risk Management

December 13 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm




This fast-paced one-day class will introduce the concept of risk management and present some ways to prevent risks in the government contracting environment. Many of the risk management activities companies are currently performing do not provide them with actionable tasks to address performance, cost and schedule risk. This course will cover risk management best practices in order to deliver projects within specified time frames, budgets, and quality requirements.
