4 Developing a Risk Management Plan

A RISK MANAGEMENT PLAN is a specialized type of project management. You apply
many of the same techniques to risk management that you would when managing any project. At
the core is the need to plan. As the old saying goes, if you fail to plan, you plan to fail. Without a
risk management plan, failure is much more likely than success.

A well-documented risk management plan helps ensure you are able to reach your desired
goal. Primarily, you create a risk management plan to mitigate risks. This plan helps you identify
the risks and choose the best solutions. It also helps you track the solutions to ensure they are
implemented on budget and on schedule. A fully implemented plan will include a plan of action
and milestones (POAM). You can then use the POAM to track the project.

Objectives of a Risk Management Plan

One of the important first steps for a risk management plan is to establish the objectives. The
objectives become the road map for your plan. They help you identify where you’re going and,
just as important, they help you know when you’ve arrived. You should establish objectives for
the plan as early as possible.

The objectives identify the goals of the project. These objectives outline what you should
include in the plan. Some common objectives for a risk management plan are:

• A list of threats

• A list of vulnerabilities

• Costs associated with risks

• A list of recommendations to reduce the risks

• Costs associated with recommendations

• A cost-benefit analysis

• One or more reports

While the reports document the above items, the risk management plan doesn’t end there. Once
top managers receive a report, they will be able to make decisions based on the data. They will
accept some recommendations. They may modify some. And they may defer some.

The next phase of the risk management plan covers implementation of the pla
