What is a Risk Plan?

A Risk Plan outlines the foreseeable project risks and provides a set of actions to be taken to both prevent the risk from occurring and reduce the impact of the risk should it eventuate.  More specifically, the plan includes:
  • A full list of all of the foreseeable risks during the project
  • A rating of the likelihood of each risk's occurring
  • A rating of the impact on the project should each risk actually occur
  • A priority rating of the overall importance of each risk
  • A set of preventative actions to reduce the likelihood of the risk's occurring
  • A set of contingent actions to reduce the impact should the risk eventuate
  • A process for managing risks through the project.
