Hello to everyone,
during the “Identify Risks” process the Risk Team is trying to find Threats and Opportunities concerning the Project using a number of Tools & Techniques (see previous post). The result of the all effort is to fill the Risk Register by using the “Metalanguage form” or the “Cause-Risk-Effect Format” as is mentioned in PMBOK and Practice Standard for Risk Management both by PMI.
So how you will find the “Causes” of Risks?
A good way to Start is by reading carefully 2 papers that you already have in hand during that stage: The Project Charter and The Scope Statement! Both of them are containing the Constrains and Assumptions of your Project.
In pages 76 & 77 of “Practice Standard for Risk Management” by PMI you can find the following guide about dealing with Assumptions and Constrains:
A good friend and respectful Risk Manager Miss Neetu Verm (Management Consultant and Corporate Trainer) posted a great article about how to deal with Assumptions check it in the following link:
