Stakeholder Risk Tolerance

Different organizations have radically different perceptions of risk. Assess the willingness to accept risk among the sponsors, and team members through:

  • Meetings

  • Discussions and interviews

  • Examination of organizational policies

  • Review of the project charter and other initial project documents

Test project assumptions in discussions with project stakeholders by asking questions for clarification. Validate risk tolerances with project stakeholders.
