Risk Management Planning
By Tom Carlos (PMP)
Risk Management Planning is the process of deciding “if and how” to implement “Risk Management.” This includes:
- Complexity and level of Risk Management
- Type of Risk Management
- Visibility within and beyond the project
Risk Management Planning…
- reflects the organization’s attitude and tolerance for risk
- is based on a project’s complexity and scope
- should begin as early as possible
- defines the level of depth and detail that the Risk Management Plan (and process) will address
Outputs from Risk Management Planning include:
- Methodology (Risk Mgt Plan)
- Roles and Responsibilities
- Budget, Schedule
- Risk Categories
- Definition of “probability” and “impact”
- Identification of Risk Tolerance levels
- Definition of tracking processes, reporting formats, and intervals
- Risk Management Plan
The Project Manager should meet with team members so that they can become familiar with the process, tools, techniques, and expectations of this phase.
