No construction project is risk free, but potential threats can be minimised and managed through implementation of a risk management strategy.  Effective risk management is a process that includes clearly identifying the risks, agreeing how best to manage or mitigate them and the inclusion of appropriate risk allowances within the project budget. In turn, this will allow the practitioner to avoid unpleasant surprises, assists in  completion within budget and on time, and allows more robust and certain project management. 

You will be given the tools to quantify the risks that impact on cost, performance and programme, and shown how to apply a risk management process effectively on any construction project. This will enable you to confidently analyse and make recommendations to project teams regarding managing risk.
