The PMI-RMP® Exam Prep Lessons
In this course, you will learn to plan risk management, identify risks, perform qualitative risk analysis, perform quantitative risk analysis, plan risk responses, implement risk responses, and monitor risks. We will cover two chapters in each weekly online session (2 hours per session).
The Risk Management Overview
Welcome to the PMI-RMP® Exam Prep Course. In this lesson, we will walk through each of the seven risk management processes.
What You Need Before You Begin
In this lesson, we will examine what you need to be a successful project/risk manager. Furthermore, we will look at other project management knowledge areas such as schedule management, cost management, stakeholder management, scope management, communications management, resource management, and procurement management.
Plan Risk Management
The key output of this process is the risk management plan. What is a risk management plan? What's included? Who develops the plan? Who should help develop the plan? What are the benefits?
In this lesson, we will discuss different ways to identify risks, how to write clear risk statements, checklists, prompt lists, and risk registers.
Perform Qualitative Risk Analysis
Once we identify risks, we need to evaluate and prioritize the risks. Qualitative risk analysis allows project managers and teams to quickly get a handle on which risks are most important.
Quantitative Risk Analysis
Sometimes, we need to take a deeper dive in assessing risks. We can evaluate our risks numerically. The output of this process provides us with additional information to make better project decisions.
Plan Risk Responses
So, we've identified and evaluated our risks. We now know which risks require a response. Therefore, we must develop risk response plans. What are these plans? What do they include? Who develops the response plans?
Implement Risk Responses
Learn how to implement risk responses. Anticipate and plan for secondary risks as you respond to your risks.
Throughout each project, we should monitor our risks. How are the risk responses working? Do we need to modify our responses? Are there new risks? Are the risk management processes effective and efficient?
Program and project management governance operates within an organization that may have a Risk Department or Enterprise Risk Management Department. These departments may provide guidance to project managers, sponsors, PMOs, and other stakeholders concerning risk management.
