SAME Leader Development COI Webinar: The Leadership of Risk Management

About This Webinar

Risk management is a key aspect of all design and construction projects that ultimately makes or breaks an otherwise successful project. Often times, risk management is approached in an objective manner of identifying specific risks and actions to mitigate those risks in a risk register. But successful risk management must go beyond identifying risks to properly handling and addressing those risks. How identified risks are handled and addressed often times requires skilled leadership. This webinar will dig into the leadership side of risk management and its importance in making a project successful.


  • Gain an understanding of risk management
  • Identify different ways risk will present itself on projects
  • Develop leadership techniques to improve risk management capabilities of engineers and project managers
