Question description

Part 1      500-600 words

Review and reflect on the knowledge that you have gained from this course. Based on your review and reflection

What were the most compelling topics that you learned in this course?

  • How did participating in discussions help your understanding of the subject matter? Is anything still unclear that could be clarified?
  • What approaches could have yielded additional valuable information?

Part 2 Deliverable Length: 4,000–8,000 words, including the deliverables from previous weeks

In previous weeks, you selected a project around which to develop your Risk Management Strategy and Plan Key Assignment. In Week 1, you crafted a letter to the project sponsor explaining the importance of project risk management. You also determined the high-level steps for conducting risk assessment and brainstormed on some of the risk categories. In Week 2, you fully identified the individual project risks and analyzed them by determining their likelihood and impact. In Week 3, you determined the mitigation strategies, which might include prevention, control, or ignoring the risk. In Week 4, you developed a project risks matrix with all of the information that you gathered in Weeks 2 and 3, and you developed a risk monitoring and control approach and plan.

Now you are ready to embark on adding all of the risk management tasks to the overall project plan, as well as producing a well-thought-out communications plan. In the final week, you will also revise the Key Assignment draft document based on feedback from your instructor and peers. Under the last sections, which are not filled in, you will develop a very detailed WBS, contingency budget, and communications plan.


the overall project deliverables are the following:

  1. Update previously completed sections based on instructor feedback.
  2. Complete "New Content" below, and copy it under the appropriate sections in Key Assignment Document called "Project Risks WBS and Budget Updates" and "Project Risks Communication Plan."

        • Put this in a WBS structure so that they can be added to an existing plan.
        • Determine a contingency budget to mitigate the risks that are most likely to occur.
        • Determine additions to the project plan budget to monitor and control risks.
    • Project Risks Communications Plan

  5. Be sure to update your table of contents before submission.
