The Key Takeaways

What is project risk management?

The Praxis Framework describes project risk management as follows. Risk management is the ability to understand and manage individual risk events and the overall risk. This allows for success by minimizing threats and maximising opportunities. Its goals are:
You must ensure that the levels of overall risk in a project, program, or portfolio are compatible and compatible with your organizational objectives.
Ensure that each individual’s risks and responses are identified
Reduce the impact of potential threats on objectives
Maximize opportunities within your scope of work

Make a plan for managing risk and issues
Your risk and issue management plan will outline how you plan to track, log and manage risks and other issues.
This is often part of the project management plan. You’ll usually have a standard way that your company expects you handle project ris.
