Healthcare (Virtual) Forum - 200617

Why Risk Management Needs to be a Team Game
presented by Bill Richardson, PMP, PgMP, CSM. Cert APM, ACC

The PMI Atlanta Healthcare Forum has 9 planned sessions throughout 2020. Proposed topics include IT & IT PMO in Healthcare, Healthcare SME/Domain Forums such as Clinical, Laboratory, Research, Tomorrow's Healthcare & Government practices/law, Thought Leadership in Healthcare, and Innovation in Healthcare Technology.


Project managers, as vanguards of change, are one of the few professions who have the ways and means of effectively responding to today’s volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity (often referred to as VUCA). As humans, we have a choice in how we respond to VUCA – be paralyzed or be energized. How risk is managed in a project determines which of these two outcomes unfold for stakeholders.

In this presentation, Bill provides an entertaining and inspiring look at why project managers need to learn how to better mobilize their stakeholders to embrace shared ownership of risk management. The Project Management Institute (PMI) in their publication of PMBOK 6.0 elevated the need for this shift by clearly stating that risk is no longer considered something PMs control but rather something that PMs monitor and prepare for (page 648 section X1.19 Section 11). The bottom line is that shared ownership among all stakeholders needs to become the new normal for risk management to be effective in times of calm or crisis. Remember, good risk management fosters vigilance in times of calm and instills discipline in times of crisis.


Bill Richardson is a seasoned learning leader, keynote speaker, and executive coach who specializes in helping organizations elevate their project, program and portfolio management capability at both the individual and team levels. He regularly leads learning programs on project, program and portfolio management, that are intentionally designed to include the required soft skills for success in today’s fast-paced, complex and multicultural environment. These programs are customized and delivered to a broad spectrum of industries such as banking, manufacturing, construction, technology, pharmaceutical, engineering, health care, finance and accounting. Bill has partnered with several global companies to create a Project Management training experience that is highly interactive, rich in content and supported by simple, easy to use job aids and templates.

He understands that adults learn best when they see value in what’s being offered and are engaged in the experience. Believing audiences deserve only the best, most up-to-date information, Bill continuously hones his craft, studying the latest research, opinions, and publications for any subject area he presents. You can count on him to remain focused on putting the needs of his audience foremost during the entire learning experience. His guiding principle is “learning is a process, not an event” which inspires continual participant focus and energy after the workshop.

Bill maintains his PMP (Project Management Professional) and PgMP (Program Management Professional) designations obtained from PMI (Project Management Institute) staying current with the industry. He also is a certified Agile Project Manager from the IAPM (International Association of Project Managers), CSM (Certified Scrum Master) by the Scrum Alliance and a certified professional coach through the International Coaching Federation
