About this Guide
Risks threaten your web projects from the very outset. For instance, every assumption you make in the planning phase carries the inherent risk that it is wrong, and has the potential to impact design, delivery, budget and schedule. This is why risks should be brainstormed at the very outset of the project, and a risk register maintained and updated throughout its lifetime.
This template enables you to log and manage your risks throughout the life of the project. Use the drop down menu to score your risks according to the probability of their occurrence and their potential impact to derive a risk score (1 low risk to 25 highest risk), and mitigate these risks accordingly.
Scale of Impact Probability
5 Catastrophic 5 Probable
4 Intolerable 4 Highly Possible
3 Undesirable 3 Possible
2 Tolerable 2 Unlikely
1 Inconsequential 1 Impossible
