Join Bonnie Biafore for an in-depth discussion in this video Identifying risks, part of Project Management Foundations: Small Projects.
It's important to identify upfront what might go wrong in a project, so you can…plan ahead and prevent a lot of the problems that you might run into.…Many people think of risks as negative events that might harm a project like a…delayed shipment, but risks really represent uncertainty.…Risks are events that may or may not occur.…One risk for the relocation project is that materials may arrive damaged.…Early on, take some time to identify risks that could affect the project so the…customer can decide whether it makes sense to do the project at all.…
For small project, make a rough estimate of the likelihood that the risk will…occur and the impact it would have, if it does.…For example with the relocation project, you think a construction delay is very…likely and can have a large impact if the delay pushes the finished data out.…Since this risk is likely and would have a large impact, you would plan ahead…for how you would handle that risk if it occurred.…It's easier to identify risks that you've countered before.…
