PRINCE2 2009 - Risk part 8

The PRINCE2® approach

Risk Register

The purpose of the Risk Register is to capture and maintain information on all of the identified threats and opportunities relating to the project.
Each risk on the Risk Register is allocated a unique identifier as well as details such as:

  • Who raised the risk
  • When it was raised
  • The category of risk
  • The description of the risk (cause, risk event, effect)
  • Probability, impact and expected value
  • Proximity
  • Risk response category
  • Risk response actions
  • Risk status
  • Risk owner
  • Risk actionee

Project Support will typically maintain the Risk Register on behalf of the Project Manager.
The Risk Management Strategy will describe the procedure for registering risks and maintaining the risk register.

For the Product Description of a Risk Register see the folder covering ‘Product Description outlines’.

Risk management is a large area and is covered in depth in ‘The Complete Risk Management package’.

PRINCE2® is a Registered Trade Mark of the Office of Government Commerce in the United Kingdom and other countries.
