“How to Manage the Risks You Didn’t Know You Were Taking”
Dr. David Hillson
Project risk covers more than uncertain future events. If you don’t recognise all the risks you end up taking them with your eyes shut. Find out what you’re missing, and discover the other types of risk that affect your project, together with practical strategies for addressing them.
The definition of risk in the PMI PMBoK Guide risk chapter includes more than uncertain future events that would have a negative effect on achievement of project objectives. The definition starts with the phrase “A project risk is an uncertain event or condition…” If we limit our view of risk to only look at one part of the risk picture, we’ll end up taking risks without knowing it.
This presentation explores the other types of risk that are usually missed from the typical risk process. Drawing on leading thinking and current best practice, David Hillson explores the full range of project risks that need to be managed. These include sources of variability (“aleatoric risk”), ambiguity (“epistemic risk”), and emergence (“ontological risk”), as well as future uncertain events (“stochastic risk”). He also explains the new concept of “overall risk” which was introduced in the PMI Practice Standard on Project Risk Management (2009) but which is nearly always overlooked. Finally the presentation reminds practitioners not to forget risks with positive impacts.
With clear illustrative examples of each type of risk, and practical response strategies for managing them, this presentation will help you to identify all types of risk that might affect your projects, and offers ways for you to tackle them effectively.

Webinar: The Anti-FrAgile Foundations of Project Management – PMI Agile COP
November 12, 2014 · by Don Kim · 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM PST / 19:00 CET/FRANCE
Epistemology is a branch of philosophical and scientific inquiry that asks “how do we know what we know?”
The speaker is amazed how little this is asked in the majority of books, research papers and industry studies related to project management. The speaker will argue that this lack of inquiry and understanding is the cause of many project failures. We will look at how the field has evolved, the underlying assumptions and a view of where we might be headed. The world has changed and things have to get done faster and better… ironically, this means we need to step back and ask probing questions and not just charge forward. This process is Anti-FrAgile. Attend and be enlightened!

« The PM Workflow Framework: Defined and Detailed » with Dan Epstein
19 November • 1-2 PM EST
PM Workflow is the PM GPS.
Just as GPS automatically selects the most efficient route to drive and changes route when issues arise, PM Workflow navigates through the project flow by selecting processes in the project execution path. These selections are based on the system of requests, decision checkpoints, decision tables and project health evaluation results. PM Workflow provides the detailed and necessary knowledge required to manage a project from scratch by instructing what to do, when to do and how to do it.
here is the book !
This webinar will discuss how PM Workflow guides and instructs project managers at every step of the project lifecycle – from the moment a project request is received until the finished product is tested and delivered to clients.
Presenter and author Dan Epstein will walk you through the set of the executable project management processes with logical decision making and detailed instructions for their execution, along with tools, control point tests, templates, checklists, tips and many examples. You will learn how this unique approach will significantly improve project quality and save your company expenses by ensuring that all of the required processes (and only the required processes) are executed at the right time. In addition, the PM Workflow will enable you to perform qualitative assessments of outcomes and redirect the process flow to an alternative execution path when issues arise, with suggested steps for resolution. With over fifty process flow diagrams that visually portray and provide a detailed explanation of processes, you will walk away with a clear understanding of how PM Workflow illustrates project management business processes and flows and how it can make your project a success.
You may learn more about PM Workflow from the website www.pm-workflow.com. Dan started the PM Workflow framework development in 2003, when a set of processes and the project management training class were developed. In 2009-2011 Dan continued working full time on PM Workflow framework, completing development in 2012. In December 2012, Cleland Award winner Rich Maltzman joined Dan to edit the book Project Workflow Management, based on PM Workflow (published by J Ross Publishing, November 2013), enriching the final outcome via a blend of their specific knowledge, experience and focus areas.

“Risk Managment for Project Driven Organizations” with Andy Jordan, PMP
6 November • 1-2 PM EST
Organizations invest a lot of time, money, and energy into developing and utilizing risk management practices as part of their project management disciplines.
Yet, when you move beyond the project to the program, portfolio, PMO and even organizational level, that same level of risk command and control rarely exists.
With this in mind, well-known subject matter expert and author Andy Jordan starts where most leave off. He explores risk management at the portfolio, program, and PMO levels.
