Show 20: Risk

Visit us at our new home:

You can listen to the show by clicking here.

Show notes: Today's focus is on Risk Management, which we call "The Black Sheep of Project Management". Risk Management is important, but only a fraction of project managers actively manage risk on their projects. We discuss why that is so and present a simple technique that will enable you to manage risk on your projects without spending hundreds of hours on this task. Don't forget to stop by at Method123, sign up for their newsletter and get the Risk Management Kit for free. Also in this episode: A Good, Bad & Ugly review about TSI's PMP Lunchtime Lecture Series, and we are continuing the giveaway of two free licenses for VIP Team To do List - listen to the show to hear how to participate - time is running out.
