Describe what each project success measure (from Exhibit 10.1) looks like on your example project. Identify at least three risks to each success measure, deter- mine which are major risks, and for each major risk develop one or more contingency plans. Identify whether the contingency plan is an avoidance plan (reducing the probability of the risk event), a mitigation plan (reducing the impact of the event), or both. Facilitate a discussion with the sponsor and other key stakeholders of your project. Have them determine the relative importance of their priorities and document them, as shown in Exhibit 10.2. Perform a risk review for your example project. Use at least three types of review, as shown in Exhibit 10.8. Which of these types gave you the most useful information? Why?
