Next the outcome of the risk assessments done as per the risk management plan will be translated into a lean, feasible and affordable risk-based monitoring plan. The trainer, who is a strategic risk-management consultant in real life, will share real case studies and examples to ensure proper practical understanding. Risk-based approaches can be simple and affordable, whiles ensuring a healthy ROI after the initial investments of time and resources.
