The Event
In the management of any project, large or small, an understanding of risk is critical. Too many software projects suffer unnecessarily from poor risk management and its consequences - projects that are over budget, delayed, or in some cases, even cancelled.
An understanding of the types of risk that can affect a project, putting in place a strategy to mitigate them, combined with the continuous monitoring of the risks, can greatly enhance the successful management and completion of a project.
Who should attend?

The event will be of interest to Project Managers, Senior Managers, Quality Managers, Team Leaders, who require an understanding of the principles of Risk Management. Other staff in your organisation that are involved in risk management or software projects would also benefit from attending.
