The Program


Opportunities, risks and uncertainties exist in every type of project, be it research programs, clinical trials, capital and maintenance, business re-engineering, IT, software and other initiatives.

This course’s aim is to give you an understanding of the processes and the ability to read and draw meaning from the reports. It will show you where the weaknesses are and how to overcome them. You will be able to ask the pertinent questions and understand the answers. The course moves you from controlled to controlling.


After this course you will be in a position to decide whether or not to initiate Opportunity and Risk Management for your Portfolio. You will be able to evaluate the risk reports and make judgements on their validity. You will know how to optimise your portfolio's position.
