What is a Risk Management Template?

A risk management plan template is an essential tool used by project managers to establish a framework that will recognize and address potential risks and threats associated to the project at hand. The risk management process involves the following:

  • Risk Identification: Identifying all potential risks affecting the project.
  • Risk Assessment: Prioritizing identified risks based on severity/damage impact.
  • Risk Mitigation: Reducing the occurrence of risk/threat by implementing control measures or removing/modifying certain aspects
  • Risk Monitoring: Evaluating the effectiveness of set control measures

What Should be Included in a Risk Management Plan?

As an essential tool for risk management, a risk management plan typically includes the following:

  • All the identified risks that can potentially impact a project.
  • A scale that estimates the likelihood of a risk’s occurrence and seriousness of impact.
  • The consequences on the project should any of the risks take place.
  • Mitigation actions that intend to either prevent the occurrence of identified risks or control their impact should they happen.
