We need the system approach for the project execution. Understanding Project Management processes in the context of the organization's business processes is very important. It'll help us apply various Project management methodologies, and their effective combination, as well as it gives the possibility of flexible management. This webinar will show a point of view, answering the following questions. Which business processes are we have in the project?

Project risks can give negative impacts on project objectives such as delay, cost overruns, decrease in quality and security aspects, then we can observe serious project failures. Risk management aims to identify the possible causes of threats and opportunities, to assess them qualitatively and quantitatively and to propose an action plan for risks deemed critical in order to decrease the undesirable effects on project objectives. Complex projects are affected by numerous risks and opportunities because of their complex organizational plan with a large number of stakeholders, complex planning with a long life-cycle, complex resource management, technical issues, and particular environmental factors.
