The Differences Between Risk Management Planning and Risk Response Planning

Because the PMBOK itself is not consistent when describing the contents of a risk management plan (see the note after Table 5.3), and because many project managers have used risk management methodologies that differ from the one described by PMI, some project managers are initially confused by the distinction that PMI makes between risk management planning and risk response planning. Table 5.3 summarizes the key differences between these two risk management processes to ensure this is not an issue for you on the exam.
