What is a Risk Register?

A Risk Register is a crucial project management tool that records all identified risks associated with a project, including their nature, impact, and probability of occurrence. It provides a structured approach to risk identification, assessment, and response planning, enabling project teams to prioritize risks based on their severity and develop strategies to mitigate or manage them. The Risk Register is continuously updated throughout the project lifecycle to reflect new risks and changes to existing ones. By systematically tracking and managing risks, the Risk Register helps ensure that project objectives are achieved with minimal disruptions, enhancing decision-making and project outcomes.

When do I use a Risk Register?

A Risk Register is utilized throughout the entire project lifecycle, starting from the planning phase to project closure. It is essential for identifying potential risks early on, as well as for tracking and managing risks as they evolve or new ones emerge. This tool supports proactive risk management, allowing project teams to prepare and implement mitigation strategies effectively. By maintaining a Risk Register, managers can ensure that risks are continuously monitored and addressed, thereby minimizing their impact on the project’s success.
