100% recommend our Risk Management course at ESTEC

All of the participants on our ‘Introduction to Project Risk Management’ course delivered with ESTEC (the European Space Agency’s “technical heart”) would recommend the training to colleagues such as:

  • “Those dealing with large and/or long-duration projects.”
  • “Anyone dealing with Project Management and System Engineering.”
  • “Any systems engineers managing interfaces and/or hardware development and verification.”
  • “Project members.”
  • “For all kind of project implementation work.”
  • “PA and project managers.”
  • “Contracts Officers and to Project Controllers.”

The course rated “Very Good” overall, with the top comment being:

  • “Initially I considered the course topic to be a bit out-of-the-box considering my nominal work, but I believe it was a very useful and interesting 2-days. As you would guess, it also provides a number of general project management guide lines (as risk management should be a large ingredient of the project management tasks). It was mentioned to be a good introductory course to Project Management 2 (PM2) from the same supplier. It does also cover the ESA policy and process, generation and maintenance of risk registers and – more importantly – how to act and use these ingredients during the project. Overall – the topic is not rocket science, but after having followed the course the definition, wording and use of ‘risk’ in the general context (and also within ESA) becomes crystal clear. The lecturer was excellent and provided many examples and some interesting case studies. I would highly recommend this course.”

Well done Dave, and no pressure for upcoming Risk courses…
