Risk Management Is Easy and Has a High Return on Investment
Every project has its problems. But you can actively prevent some of them. Risk management starts with scanning for potential problems and follows up by taking action to prevent the problem.
Versatile's project management training delivered in Seattle, onsite, and online describes a repeatable practice to scan for problems and solve them before they slow you down.
Microsoft Project can play a role in risk management. Ralph Santos shows you how to build a risk matrix using Project Online and Excel.
Versatile's online Microsoft Project training does not include this nifty trick. So read about it on the Microsoft Project User Group site.
Your Project Management Career Can Be a Surprise
When do you start being a project manager? Mark Mullaly started when he was 14. But didn't know he would be a career project manager for another two decades.
Over and over, people attending Versatile's project management training in Seattle, online, and onsite claim that they aren't project managers. And yet they are attending project management training because they are managing projects.
What does this tell us? Project management is now more than a career. It is a universally applicable skillset.
The surprise? It always has been.
