risks. estimate impacts. The Risk Management Plan will also contain a Risk . and define responses to issues.

Assessment Matrix and Risk response
The risk management plan will contain an analysis of likely risks with both high and low impact, as well
as mitigation strategies to help the project avoid being derailed should common problems arise.
Risk management plans will be reviewed periodically by the project team to avoid having the analysis
become stale and not reflective of actual potential project risks. As a part of Galfar’s QA system
procedures Risk Management Plans are audited. The live Risk Register will be held by the Project Manager
in this project.

Project Director (nominee) will identify various factors in order to analyze risk while preparing risk
response strategies, including:

 Event: What could happen?

 Probability: How likely is it to happen?

 Impact: How bad will it be if it happens?

 Mitigation: How can we reduce the Probability (and by how much)?

 Contingency: How can we reduce the Impact (and by how much)?

 Risk = Probability x Impact

 Reduction = Mitigation X Contingency

 Exposure = Risk – Reduction

10.1 Risk Management Procedures

The project risk analysis will be undertaken as defined within the project Risk Management procedures
in Management System Procedures of Galfar. The Project Director (nominee) working with the project
team and project stakeholders will ensure that risks are actively identified, analyzed, and managed
throughout the life of the project. Risks will be identified as early as possible in the project so as to
minimize their impact.

Roles and Responsibility
Role Responsibilities

The Risk Management Team will be responsible for identifying
the risks, the dependencies of the risk within the project, the context
Risk Management Team and consequence of the risk. They will also be responsible for
determining the impact, timing, and priority of the risk as well
The Project Director (nominee) is a member of the Risk
Management Team. The Project Director (nominee) determines
if the Risk is unique, identifies risk interdependencies across

projects, verifies if risk is internal or external to project, and assigns
risk classification. During the life of the project, they

The risk owner determines which risks require mitigation and
contingency plans; they generate the risk mitigation and
contingency strategies and perform a cost benefit analysis of

the proposed strategies. The risk owner is responsible for
monitoring and controlling and updating the status of the risk
throughout the project

The other stakeholders assist in identifying and determining the

context, consequence, impact, timing, and priority of the risk.

10.2 Risk Identification

Risk identification will involve the project team, appropriate stakeholders, and will include an evaluation
of environmental factors and the project management plan including the project scope, schedule,
cost, or quality. Careful attention will be given to the project deliverables, assumptions,
constraints, WBS, cost/effort estimates, resource plan, and other key project documents.

10.3 Risk Analysis

All risks identified will be assessed to identify the range of possible project outcomes. Risks will
be prioritized by their level of importance.
The probability and impact of occurrence for each identified risk will be assessed by the Project
Director, with input from the project team using the following approach:

10.4 Likelihood (Probability)

 Certain – 81% - 100% probability of occurrence rated as 5
 Likely – Between 61% and 80 % probability of occurrence rated as 4
 Possible – Between 41% and 60% probability of occurrence rated as 3
 Unlikely – Between 21% and 40% probability of occurrence rated as 2
 Rare – Between 1% and 20% probability of occurrence rated as 1
 Impossible – Between 0% probability of occurrence rated as 0

10.5 Impact

Extreme – Risk that has the potential to greatly impact project cost,
project schedule or performance

Very High – Risk that has the potential to slightly impact project cost, project schedule
or performance

Medium – Risk that has medium impact on project cost, project schedule or performance

Low - Risk that has relatively little impact on project cost, project
schedule or performance

Negligible – Risk that has no impact on project cost, project schedule or performance

-Accordingly a Risk Matrix will be developed and Risk Ranking will be given to each identified
Area of Risk / Type.

10.6 Risk Response Planning

Each major risk will be assigned to a risk owner for monitoring and controlling purposes to ensure that
the risk will not “fall through the cracks”. For each major risk, one of the following approaches
will be selected to address it:

 Avoid – Eliminate the threat or condition or to protect the project objectives from its impact
by eliminating the cause

 Mitigate – Identify ways to reduce the probability or the impact of the
 Accept – Nothing will be
 Contingency –Define actions to be taken in response to

Risks will be assigned a risk owner(s) who will track. Any secondary risks that result from risk mitigation response will be documented and follow the risk management protocol as the primary risks. a course of action will be outlined in the event that the risk does materialize in order to minimize its impact. For each major risk that is to be mitigated or that is accepted. outsourcing. adding resources.7 Risk Monitoring. re-evaluate. Controlling and Reporting The level of risk in the project will be tracked. The Risk Manager (Project Director or nominee) will:  Review. This may include protot yping. monitored and controlled and reported throughout the project lifecycle.) For each risk that will be mitigated.  Monitor and control risks that have been identified  Review and update the top ten risk list  Escalate issues/ problems to management The Risk Owner will:  Help develop the risk response and risk trigger and carry out the execution of the risk response. 10.  Transfer – Shift the consequence of a risk to a third party together with ownership of the response b y making another party responsible for the risk (buy insurance.

 Identify and participate in the analysis of any new risks that occur. .
