Project risk management is the “processes of conducting risk management planning, identification, analysis, response planning, response implementation, and monitoring risk on a project” (Project Management Institute, 2017, p. 569).
Risk management plays a critical role in projects. How the risks of a project are identified and managed can affect whether the project is completed on time and within budget and whether it is a success. According to Cooper, Grey, Raymond, and Walker (2014), “risk management assists project managers in setting priorities, allocating resources and implementing actions and processes that reduce the risk of the project not achieving its objectives” (p. xviii).
