You Have to Calculate the Risk

You Have to Calculate the Risk – Risk Matrix

The title reflects insight from Naved Abdali reminding us that we have to calculate the risk. Abdali’s statement perfectly captures that we cannot consider risks calculated if we don’t take time to calculate them. In this episode I share some practical tips on how to evaluate the probability, severity and impact of risks for projects, incident response and special event planning.

I found the templates from @smartsheet very helpful.
