Risk management is crucial in maximizing your chances of project success by identifying risks early on and planning how to manage them. The following list of risks and proposed mitigations or preventive actions should help you in this process. The list is far from complete but contains the most generic risks that I have encountered in numerous business and IT projects. If you work with a Construction firm, political campaigns or a new product introduction project, these sample risks can be used as well but may need to be supported by specific risk catalogues as well.
