Assessment 1: intro to the plan

Complete the introduction of the risk management plan by analyzing and defining the plan’s goals and objectives as they relate to the evaluation of risks for your chosen case study. Include the company background information as well.

How does a project manager recognize risks to a project and apply risk management techniques to help minimize them? It is important to be able to first identify the risks and then understand their impact on an organization.

As a project manager, you will want to select the techniques that work the best for the project and the project team, such as brainstorming or a cause-and-eff€ect diagram. Risk management techniques help provide the project manager with an idea of possible areas of the project that could be affected, and which ones may need a risk evaluation.

Research risk management planning and the eff€ect of the choice of methods on the overall predictability and assessment of risk. There are necessary steps when preparing an organization to assess risk. These include accepting a new cultural approach to incorporating risk management into all aspects of the company. A new cultural approach may involve meeting with stakeholders and discussing the need to change and modify existing culture to mitigate and eliminate risks. As a project manager, you must be able to lead the risk management process. You must analyze the organization’s current position, including its objectives and goals, and determine the direction required for prioritizing the risks for an organization. Typically, you would include key stakeholders, because they will impact the business decisions and assist in the evaluation of key areas in the management of risk for the company,

Introduction

Project risks arise anytime there is a project to manage. It is important for project managers to be able to determine project risks for all types of projects. This includes projects large and small. Project risks can be mitigated by thorough planning and adapting risk analysis techniques. The assessments in this course provide you with hands-on experience in the analysis and evaluation of project risks. You will integrate various aspects of project risk planning, analysis, and evaluation. Note: Developing a risk management plan for a project requires specific steps in sequence. Complete the assessments in this course in the order in which they are presented.

You will be using the Risk Management Plan Template [DOCX] to develop a risk management plan. Note: Submit the updated template for each assessment; as indicated in the instructions for each assessment.

The final product for this course will be the complete Risk Management Plan. Your completed plan could be used as evidence of your learning for a job interview or an annual employment review. Read the template before beginning this assessment.

It is critical to identify risks and evaluate both their qualitative and quantitative aspects in the risk management evaluation process.

Section 1 – Introduction to the Plan

You will fill out different sections of the Risk Management Plan Template for each assessment.

Use the Risk Management Plan Template to record your analysis for Section 1 – Introduction to the Plan. Your analysis of the project objectives, in relation to the evaluation of risks, must include the following sections. Refer to the template for directions on what to put in each.

  • 1.1 Benefits of Risk Management.
  • 1.2 Project Goals and Objectives.
  • 1.3 Company Background.
  • 1.4 Risk Identification.

It may be helpful to read “Understanding Project Risk Exposure Using the Two-Dimensional Risk Breakdown Matrix,” linked in the Resources, which is about the importance of being proactive in risk assessment and risk evaluation. You will also learn about the risk breakdown structure (RBS). Both of these subjects apply to your plan.
