I need to create a plan for Risk Management, and track our progress. What should I use?
The standard template for risk management is a Risk Log. This stores risk items in a list, or “Log”, and describes the status and severity of each risk. Some project managers also use RAID logs, which track the wider picture of Assumptions, Issues and Dependencies, as well as Risks.
