David Sharp, a SOAR Associate, attended “Risk Management in Projects:  Lessons from Case Studies”, a full day in-depth workshop focusing on the Risk Management through the use of historical case studies.  The session provided a refresher on risk management and was valuable at understanding the concept of enterprise risk management when looking at four infamous ventures.  Following the planning and execution of the four ventures, the students used 20/20 hindsight to identify the successes and missteps of each project and ways a proper risk appetite could mitigate the missteps.  This class enlightened the student on how effective risk management with a balanced risk appetite means success for large and complex projects.
