How to show Risk Level (RAG) on a Roadmap

How to show the levels of risk, in a useful way, on a Project or Product Roadmap, so that it can be understood quickly.

Answer

  1. Use a “Red, Amber, Green” approach – this is also known as “RAG Status”.
  2. Show a key in your Roadmap Legend.
  3. Label each Roadmap item (each project item within each work stream) with Red, Amber or Green.
  4. Some professionals choose to use a “TBD” (to be decided) colour coding too, if an item has not yet been assessed.
