Project Risk Matrix Template

deliverable
by Anupam Ganguly

This template can be used for listing risks associated with the project. The identified risks can be classified as per the given choices; the impact severity and the probability of occurrence is then determined on the scale of 1-5. The risk score is calculated as impact x probability. The template has areas for risk response plans, listing the person/group responsible for implementing the response plan, and the timeline. The template should be filled by the project manager or the project lead.

deliverable
by Jon Quigley, Kim H. Pries

This template should be used in conjunction with the article Systematic Risk Register.
