Risks - can you identify them? Network meeting on 5 April in Berlin

Risks - can you identify them? Network meeting on 5 April in Berlin 09.03.2016 - You’re a member of the Berlin IAPM community, so we’d like to invite you to our IAPM Network Meeting for project managers at smile! GbR (Gierkezeile 12, 10585 Berlin). A journalist once wrote that the biggest disasters come unannounced and are impossible to predict. He was writing about the tsunami. Despite that, a great many events are held on the subjects of business and project risk forecasting and management. At our event on 5 April we’ll be asking ourselves what risks are, when project managers have to seek them out and identify them and how we can develop risk management strategies. There will be examples and small exercises to demonstrate the pros and cons of risk analyses and risk-related activities. And we'll also be looking at the other side of the coin - opportunities.

A few words from the IAPM’s President

A few words from the IAPM’s President 18.12.2015 - In most projects and undertakings, a lot of things depend on whether the people involved are using one-hundred percent reliable computer software or apps.

You’re floating around the Spacelab (because it has zero gravity) and in front of you there is a chair with wheels on rails, like a kind of space tram. Read more »
