When Plan A doesn’t go the way it was intended, it is important to have a Plan B and C but why is it necessary to have plans in place for when things go wrong? Join Digital Nova Scotia and Marc Charbonneau of dlP Business Consulting to learn about Risk Management in the tech sector.
In this webinar you will learn;
– How risks are a result of ambiguity and uncertainty, and how these can be grouped as known-knowns, known-unknowns, unknown-unknowns and how these each fit into estimates, risk budgets, management reserve, and how these affect margin and price.
– How to identify and assess risks including prioritizing and quantifying them.
– Strategies to deal with risks and how to report progress on the effectiveness of those strategies.
– How inaction can leave quite a bit of risk exposure near the end of a project when your resources have mostly been expended, whereas taking action early on will lead to greater success.
