Congratulations[edit | edit source]

Congratulations! You have completed this lesson. In this lesson, you learned and practiced applying the three steps for risk planning. You should now be able to create a risk plan for your next WBT project and increase the likelihood of delivering the final product on time, on budget, and within scope.

Summary[edit | edit source]

  • The three steps in the risk planning process are: identify potential projects risks, prioritize project risks, and mitigate project risks.
  • The output of the risk planning process is the risk plan.
  • The development team and other key stakeholders identify all potential projects risks via a brainstorming session.
  • Project risks should be specific and focused on events that could prevent the development team from accomplishing a project objective.
  • The development team ranks each project risk based on the probability of it occurring and its potential impact on the project.
  • Once probability and impact rankings are assigned, calculate the priority of each risk by multiplying its probability by its impact.
  • To mitigate a risk, the development team may decide to alter the project plan, add additional tasks, or plan for risks.
