Risk Form

When I raise a risk with my project manager do I always have to fill in a risk form ?

Yes, you should always complete a risk form every time you identify a risk that you believe your project manager should be made aware of. You do not have to complete the form in depth but you should at least provide a summary of the risk so that it is recorded. The reason is that it is then the project managers responsibility to take that documented risk and implement actions to mitigate it. If you do not document the risk accurately then it is easier for the project manager to overlook the risk during the project lifecycle. A risk form should included a detailed description of the risk, the likelihood of the risk occurring and the impact should it occur. It should also include a set of preventative and contingent actions to mitigate the risk effectively. The project manager reviews and approves the risk as well as the actions taken to mitigate it.
