Leave a comment

We’re thrilled to have Peter Leeson at RABS again with a workshop on Risk Management.

On May 25th, we invite you to a workshop on: “Risk Management”. Both RABS & IASA Romania as co-organisers would be happy to see you there.

Title: Risk Management

Abstract: This workshop will briefly introduce to some of the key principles of risk management: how much time and money are you willing to invest on a problem which might never happen?

The workshop is a practical approach to identifying risks, assigning them a value based on their probability and the cost of the issue, should the risk turn into a problem and how to decide what is the best approach to reduce the impact of the risk.

The workshop is interactive, and you will be encouraged to apply the principles to your real risks, those that impact your work, your project, your company. You will be assisted in identifying practical approaches to mitigating the risks as well as deciding whether contingency management would be more effective.

Peter Leeson is an old friend of our association and Cluj. He has a 40 year long career in software development and is currently a visiting scientist la Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh (Pennsylvania, USA). He is also an internationally recognised speaker, consultant and process appraiser. Presently, he is not only a certified CMMI lead appraiser, but also does quality assurance and development work in improving and rewriting the various courses of the CMMI Institute.

Peter’s name is already familiar for those of us who attended his presentations at ITCamp 2013 & 2014 (and soon 2015) and RABS Guest Sessions in 2012 & 2013 in Cluj. This time, we dedicate this session to Managers, Architects, Team Leads and all interested in what Risk Management is about.
