Risk Category: Categorization of risks by area of project affected, source of risk or other useful category. Probability: The likelihood that a risk or opportunity will occur (on a scale from 0 to 5 with 5 being the highest). Impact: The impact of the risk on the project if the risk occurs (scale from 0 to 5 with 5 being the highest). Risk Score: Determined by multiplying probability and impact (scale from 0 to 100). Risk Ranking: A priority list which is determined by the relative ranking of the risks (by their scores) within the project. Risk Response: The action which is to be taken if this risk occurs. Risk Owner: The person who the project manager assigns to watch for triggers, and manage the risk response if the risk occurs.
