Week 3:

Given your improved understanding of natural and human risks, and ranking, classifying, and evaluating these risks, think about how you would communicate these risks and any mitigation processes to others on the project team. 

You’ve been hired by a local business to evaluate the risks of their oceanfront restaurant and then train the project team on how to recognize these risks. Consider the natural and human risks involved.

Respond to the following in a minimum of 175 words:

Select one natural risk and one human risk this business should take into consideration. Prepare what you’d like to say to the project team. The following should be included:

Week 5:

As you are now aware, there are many project management tools available on the market, each with strengths and weaknesses and applicability to specific project requirements. A valuable attribute for a project manager is the ability to understand these strengths and limitations and how to maximize the value of the selected tool to ensure the success of their project.

Respond to the following in a minimum of 175 words for each tool:

· Where do you see this being a limitation for an organization? Why?

Week 6:

Project management tools have features that can be used to keep team members and stakeholders aware of project status and any issues that may occur during project execution. These issues can include updates on known project risks or newly occurring project risks. However, sometimes the features in project management tools do not work in the way they are intended.

Respond to the following in a minimum of 175 words:

· What are some of the ways you can use software automation tools to communicate risk? What are some of the concerns about these tools that the authors from your textbook share? Share an experience that would have benefitted from the solution, and why.
