Risk Analysis: Definition, Examples And Methods

Project risk analysis is essential for project managers to classify project risks and determine which of them should be tracked closely. It involves using tools and techniques to determine the likelihood and impact of project risks that have been previously identified. There are three things to consider when assessing project risks: risk probability, risk impact and risk exposure. Risk probability is estimated through qualitative and quantitative risk analysis, while risk impact is determined by considering the type of risk and its potential impact on the project.
Risk analysis is a tool used by businesses to assess the likelihood and impact of project risks. Qualitative risk analysis relies on expert subject matter opinions, subjective and non-statistical means, while quantitative risk analysis is a statistical analysis of project risks that relies on data. Risk exposure combines risk probability and risk impact in one formula, and can only be used when businesses can measure the potential losses associated with risk. Quantitative risk analysis tools are linear regression models or the Monte Carlo simulation, both statistical techniques that simulate scenarios and their different outcomes.
