Topic: 
Risk Management in King Arthur's Time

Bruce Fieggen, a Project Management guru, has planned and managed projects in the Pharmaceutical and Medical Device Industries for the last 25 years with a focus on Risk Management.

Five years ago, poking about in the ruins of an ancient British Abbey, he found a book written in Old English that he has translated and is in the process of converting to a project management novel. It tells the story of a project manager building watch-towers in King Arthur's Britain who discovers Project Management techniques in the process.

During this session, Bruce will describe highlights of this book and lead discussions that examine the way project risks can be dealt with today using techniques developed over 1,500 years ago.

Initially Bruce will demonstrate Risk Response Planning through the use of techniques for Avoiding, Mitigating, Transferring or Accepting Risks. Finally, Bruce will take you through a fascinating Root Cause Analysis done by the old project manager leading to the original use of the '6 Why's' technique.
