I hope it’s safe to say that Risk Management has gained enough attention over the past few years to have become at least a consideration in most managers’ minds.
I hope that before embarking on every project a PM will conduct a project risk identification with key stakeholders and at least try to estimate which risks are the big ones.

So – wearing my optimism hat – there are a lot of people out there conducting risk assessments with a wide range of topics, detail, and experience.
Consider this a layman’s guide to an effective risk assessment. First, a word of caution, I am not an accountant, auditor, or lawyer, in fact I’m a nerdy computer science guy, so this is purely a completely biased (yep, it is) but very effective way I personally have managed upwards of 20 corporate wide risk assessments. Before you dive into the risk assessment there are a couple of basics to get sorted:
By now hopefully you’ve got some ideas on how to run an effective risk assessment, and our software will improve the results with anonymous voting. We’ve helped hundreds of companies, large and small, get great results very efficiently. This includes companies like SONY, WAL-MART, PHILLIPS, HEINZ, DELOITTE, PWC, E&Y and small companies that you’ve never heard of. We’ve even helped the Canadian Government and the United Nations. Oh, and our software doesn’t cost much since it scales to the number of users that you need. So stop reading and buy our software.
