July 18, 2017 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

Event Description:

  • Do senior leaders ignore your risk meetings, and you, like the plague? Do they ask the same questions over and over, which highlight their misconceptions and confusion associated with sound risk methodology?“Magic 8-Ball Risk Management,” is a fun, yet informative, presentation based on Bob Mahler’s project experience. After 25+ years of risk management there are some very common questions and comments that Bob has repeatedly heard and most can be easily answered with one of the 20 possible responses from a Magic 8-Ball! This presentation is for all experience levels and will touch upon the risk plan, supporting documentation, risk owners and much more. You’ll be amazed at how a Magic 8-Ball can be used to bring clarity to risk management!”

Event Objectives:
