This intensive workshop provides you with the skills, competencies, and proven tools to lead teams, build allies, negotiate important deals, manage risk, maintain peak performance over the long term, and orchestrate complex change under tight deadlines and shifting prior The seminar focuses is on mastering the skills needed to: select projects; legitimate constraints; apply principled-negotiation skills to secure a clear mandate and negotiate with stakeholders; anticipate, assess and manage risks including resistance to change and environmental, health, safety and governance risks; allocate resources applying cutting-edge heuristics; build and motivate high-performing teams; assign responsibility; control quality and complete the project ahead of time within budget. You will learn to control change, recognize early warning signs of delays and cost overruns and take corrective action promptly. The program features real-life case studies and teamwork. The leader Alain Paul Martin teaches strategy and risk to graduate students and leads project management seminars throughout the world including international conferences of the Project Management Institute (PMI). His Advanced Risk Management Workshop has gained the recognition of clients in finance, defense, information technology (IT), aerospace, mining, governments and power generation, both nuclear and hydro. An alumnus of Concordia and Harvard Business School where he studied entrepreneuship, he also certified in principle-based negotiation and mediation from Harvard Law School. 1.

Play an instrumental role in project selection, definition, strategy formulation, risk management and progress control: Identify the critical success factors for each project; Assess the interest and degrees of freedom of each party; Apply new business intelligence tools to uncover unusual risks and opportunities; Seek innovative ways to maximize the value to clients and partners; Recognize early warning signals for delays, cost overruns and deficiencies in quality and performance; Scan for project risk and formulate the best strategies and contingency plans to manage it; Predict change and establish control mechanisms. 4. Improve your leadership and negotiation skills: Value and seek trust-building ingredients essential to the creation of lasting agreements; Identify the various tactics used by coercive and strident negotiators; Develop constructive ways to prevent and manage hostility and deadlocks; Practice negotiations under increasingly complex situations, and with demanding negotiators; Detect how to call for a recess or a graceful exit when the face-to-face atmosphere is neither adding substantive nor relational value; Build valuable allies based on common interests; Act with integrity and never forget the common good and the needs of all constituencies, be they present at the negotiation table or not. 5. Prepare a Project Execution Plan (PEP) and implement accordingly: Develop a sound work-breakdown structure; Allocate scarce resources across multiple projects taking into account capability, technology, risks, cost, slack, free float, personal needs and strategic leverage; Estimate time and schedule work while taking into account time-related risks including downtime, delays, holidays and surprise events; Budget under uncertainty and explore different scenarios for commitment and cash flow; Integrate the project plan by linking schedules, resources and costs to quality and work progress; Prepare earned-value charts that integrate work accomplishment; Evaluate actual progress against projections, re-assess risks, and take corrective action; Exercise proper and selective control over the project destiny with an appropriate balance between soft- and hard-control measures.
