Risk man­age­ment and resource plan­ning are key ele­ments in the suc­cess­ful com­ple­tion of a project. The process­es and activ­i­ties nec­es­sary to man­age risk, a detailed under­stand­ing of the increased impor­tance of project pro­cure­ment, and the core con­cepts, as well as tools and prac­tices, to be employed for effec­tive project human resource man­age­ment will be stud­ied in this two-day sem­i­nar. Using an applic­a­ble case study, the con­cepts learned in the class­room can be imme­di­ate­ly applied to your real-life project.
