- Write a memo to the project sponsor, responding to the following questions:
- Why did you choose the waterfall method for your project?
- Was the risk identification process appropriate for your project? Why or why not?
- How did the quantitative and qualitative risk analyses help you in prioritizing the project risks and assigning numerical values?
- What were some of the risk response strategies you did not use, and why were these not appropriate for the risks?
- What are some ways that the risk management activities can be improved in future projects?
