Identifying Risks in Your Organization
Risk is an inevitable aspect of any business. As a manager, it's important that you mitigate or avoid the potential impact of a risk if it comes to pass, to ensure the long-term survival of your organization. This course focuses on the first step in managing risk, identifying risks to your organization. You’ll explore the difference between internal and external risks, and how some risks may actually present a strategic opportunity. You’ll also learn how to use some techniques that can help you identify risks and calculate the probability that they will occur, including root cause identification, the Delphi technique, and brainstorming sessions.

Assessing Your Organization's Risks
Risk is a fact of life for businesses and one that will never just go away. But before you can start managing risk, you need to be able to assess a risk – as well as its probability  – in order to create a strategic plan that will enable you to avoid or mitigate its potential negative impact. In this course, you’ll learn some common techniques for assessing risk, including opportunity assessment, and threat assessment using FMEA – failure mode and effects analysis.

Responding Effectively to Risks
The third step to take when managing risk, once you’ve identified and assessed risks to your organization, is to deal with them appropriately. Some risks may have a higher probability of becoming a reality than others, while others may have more of a negative impact. You’ll need to treat each of these types of risks differently. This course covers how to create an effective strategy for responding to risk, such as risk exposure adjustment and contingency planning. It also outlines specific strategic plans for dealing with a risk that may be a threat or an opportunity.

Managing a Project to Minimize Risk and Maximize Quality
When starting a project, there are many things to consider. One key area is risk. Managing risks means preparing ahead of time for all the things that could go wrong…or go right! Another key area is quality. How are you going to ensure that your product or service meets stakeholders' expectations? And then there's figuring out whether to do all the work in-house or outsource it to a third party. And how do you choose the vendors who will partner with you in managing risk to maximize quality? This course will help you sort out all these considerations by explaining common methods and best practices related to risk management, quality management, and procurement.
