Happy World Risk Day!


Focusing on the importance of effective management, the second annual World Risk Day features webinars, interviews, and live virtual sessions from project managers and risk practioners around the world. Beginning May 14th, 2013 at 12:00AM EST, World Risk Day provides everyone with the ability to learn more about risk management and why it’s important to project success.

Why is World Risk Day necessary? According to a 2012 Accenture report, only 30% of capital projects are delivered on time and only 15% on budget. This year World Risk Day challenges the typical “project success is delivered by focusing on cost and schedule management.” The speakers will examine how real success in today’s complex projects requires bringing risk into the equation.

The 2012 World Risk Day attracted over 2,300 registrations and with the 2013 speaker line-up, this year is sure to be more. Webinars this year come from a range of speakers, including Assistant Secretary Alan D. Cohn, US Department of Homeland Security and Michael Lopez, Senior Associate, Strategic Innovation Group, Booz Allen Hamilton. The resources page also includes plenty of reading options with reports and whitepapers from Deloitte, Aberdeen, McKinsey, and PwC. 

Live sessions will be spread over 24 hours and all content is free and available online.
