Managing Risk Categories and Outcomes

RiskyProject has a default list of risk categories and outcome types. You may customize risk categories and outcome types: add new outcomes or delete existing categories and outcome types. For example, you add the category security, which is not in the list of predefined categories:

Category: Security,  Outcome Type 1: Trespassing , Outcome Type 2: Information Security Failure

Categories are shown at the top of Risk Register, Risk Properties, Risk Matrix, and Risk Report views. You are able to filter risks based on category. Outcome types are filtered based on the risk probabilities and outcomes. For example, you enter the risk "Failure of security procedure". It will have probability 60%, outcome type "Information Security Failure" and outcome "Low". Risk categories related to project duration are referred to as "Schedule and Scope". This category is shown Risk Register as the "Duration" category.

  • One risk may have different outcomes type and categories. For example, "Low quality supplies" can affect quality and safety. RiskyProject will calculate the impact of this risk on safety and quality separately, and the combined impact on all risk categories.
  • You can enable/disable risk outcomes. Once disabled, risk outcomes will no longer be available on the Probabilities and Outcome tab of Risk Information dialog box.
  • You may save a customized set of risk categories and outcome types to the system registry for all future projects on your computer by clicking the Set as Default button. This new default set of risk categories and outcome types will not affect existing projects. You may also restore a pre-defined set of categories and outcome types by clicking the Restore Defaults button.
  • You may copy the risk category and outcome type data to the clipboard. To do this select a row under which you want to add a copy risk outcome, right-click on the row number and choose Copy Data
