Course Description

When starting a project, there are many things to consider. One key area is risk. Managing risks means preparing ahead of time for all the things that could go wrong or go right! Another key area is quality. How are you going to ensure that your product or service meets stakeholders' expectations? And then there's figuring out whether to do all the work in-house or outsource it to a third party. And how do you choose the vendors who will partner with you in managing risk to maximize quality?

This course will help you sort out all these considerations by explaining common methods and best practices related to risk management, quality management, and procurement.
