 Important Features of Risk Management

Whilst the actual process of risk management is well known (gather your own risks, review them and develop mitigation plans) all too often project teams get too blasé about risk and reevaluate the principles.

• Risk management requires sustaining it isn't merely a onetime only procedure.

• Recognizing the function that possible impact has in determining what you do.

The role of impact

Most project managers when assessing risk will create some kind of risk register or log that's used to catch risks for future inspection.

Whilst these logs differ in content and style most will include some common components.

Of these, impact, is among the important ones! Impact describes what's going to occur if the risk is realized. For instance, you may carry a risk that in your IT job that the program may not satisfy the requirements of the customer.

Let's consider the effects of this for a moment – that the client could – withhold payment, require expensive rework at the project teams cost, the project team may have to perform additional activities such as more detailed requirements gathering or coding.

For many project teams looking to skimp on risk, management effect can often be scored concerning High, Moderate, and Low and while this is a primitive method it does not really do the work justice. All risks aren't created equal and do require different management procedures.
