Risk and Risk Language

Strategic Business Management skills

Learning to "speak risk" is a significant undertaking in some organizations.  But it's also an amazing opportunity.  By becoming the resident risk linguist, we as project managers can assume a mantle of authority without asking for it.  We have the ability to build a shared understanding of terms of art, and thus become the internal resident experts on the topic. This presentation affords us the ability to start down the road toward a new risk language. 

Learning Objectives & Outcomes

Upon completion of this presentation, participants will be able to:

  1. Identify at least three starting points to build a risk language
  2. Build alliances within our organizational project communities
  3. Communicate more effectively with our clients and management
