Risk Management Tools and Techniques for Construction Projects

Thursday, October 21

9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.



This one-day advanced workshop explains risk management process for a typical construction project from risk planning and assumptions analysis to risk monitoring and control. The course covers the following risk management processes in a construction project: risk planning, risk identification, qualitative and quantitative risk management techniques, risk response planning, and risk monitoring and control.  Attendees will be required to participate in many group hands-on exercises and case studies.


Course Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  1. Compare actual Risk Management plans and identify knowledge Gaps,
  2. Develop a risk breakdown structure, using different techniques,
  3. Identify risks for inclusion in the Risk Register, using a case study approach,
  4. Apply different risk prioritization techniques to rank project risks,
  5. Practice quantitative techniques to determine project contingency added to budget,
  6. Plan and apply project Risk Responses,
  7. Monitor and Control significant risks and implement proper mitigation strategies
