Monitoring Risks in Merlin Project

Merlin Project Support

As a Project Manager scheduling tasks and paying attention to work, resources and cost, you know that every project entails risks. Risks influence your project in many different ways, so you'll definitely want to keep track of them as well.

With Merlin Project you can record risks at any given time throughout the progress of your project. Just call the insert menu to add new risks as soon as they are identified. You can classify them later, assess an occurring probability, potential impact on costs, scope or the deadline and assign any required actions to the person in charge.

To monitor and keep track of all identified risks of your project, you can switch to a 'Risk' view configuration of the Attachments or Reports.

Risk Closing

Sometimes no matter how hard you try to mitigate them, risks still find a way to occur.
When this happens, just record it in the 'Did occur' checkbox. Take some time and write down the 'Lessons Learned'. You can use this experience to mitigate similar risks more effectively in the future.
