10 Components of Risk Management Plan

The scale of probabilities and impact defined for use in qualitative risk analysis using terms such as “very unlikely” to “almost certain” with respective values in members for these terms for instance “very unlikely” may have .05 as probability value.
#4 Probability and Impact Matrix
These are the predefined matrix with risk priority areas earmarked, which has a product of impact value on the X-axis and probability value on the Y-axis.
