Risk Dynamics and Resilience - PMGT6891

Year - 2019

Projects are inherently uncertain as they require planning in the present for action to be taken in the future. Such uncertainty gives rise to both risk and opportunity. This unit of study provides a broad and contemporary coverage of the dynamic nature of risk and the need for project and organisational resilience to deal with risk and benefit from opportunity. Against a background of risk management theory, industry standards and practice, students will be provided with opportunities to reflect upon and share their experiences as a basis for developing their skills in identifying and dealing with project risk and making informed decisions aligned with organisational strategy and risk appetite. Integrated qualitative and quantitative approaches for identification, analysis, prioritisation, mitigation, monitoring and response to risk will be covered. Assessment will include opportunities to draw upon work based examples.
