Risk management

The purpose of risk management is to ensure levels of risk and uncertainty are properly managed, so any potential threat to the delivery of outputs (level of resourcing, time, cost and quality) and the realisation of outcomes/benefits by the Business Owner(s) is appropriately managed to ensure the project is completed successfully.

The Tasmanian Government Project Management Guidelines provides a definition of risk, identifies the main elements of risk management, the roles and responsibilities for successful risk management and documentation requirements.

The resources provided in this toolkit include links to relevant:

  • Sections from the Tasmanian Government Project Management Guidelines
  • Fact sheets
  • Templates
  • Examples
  • Useful links
    plus any further resources that may be helpful
