The current business climate is increasingly uncertain and companies need their employees to be competent, efficient and knowledgeable when it comes to managing Opportunities and Threats. Every employee need to ensure he or she is up-to-date on international standards and best practice required to effectively mitigate threats and capitalise on opportunities to save company’s time and money.

1. Risk Templates

During our workshop, participants (from 9 different countries) were familiarized with all the processes of Risk Management during a Project through a detailed and realistic scenario.

First, we read and analyzed our Project Charter:

As a second step, the participants were separated into teams and started to Identify the Stakeholders of the Project:

Next step was the composition of our Risk Management Plan which was followed by the Identification of Opportunities and Threats of the Project. The workshop teams have used the appropriate Risk templates inside the classroom and fill them in with post-its after agruements regarding the nature of each Risk:
