From the Paper:

"The work entitled: "The Owner's Role in Project Risk Management" states that the "ultimate purpose of risk identification and analysis is to prepare for risk mitigation. Mitigation includes reduction of the likelihood that a risk event will occur and/or reduction of the effect of a risk event if it does occur." (Committee for Oversight and Assessment of U.S. Department of Energy Project Management, National Research Council, 2005) Risk mitigation plans include characterization of the "root causes of risks that have been identified and quantified in earlier phases of the risk management process." (Committee for Oversight and Assessment of U.S. Department of Energy Project Management, National Research Council, 2005) Further, evaluation of the risk interactions and common causes is an important part of risk management strategy. Third, identification of alternative mitigation strategies, methods and tools is critical in risk mitigation. Fourth, it is important to make an assessment and prioritize mitigations alternatives." (Committee for Oversight and Assessment of U.S. Department of Energy Project Management, National Research Council, 2005) Fifth, selection and commitment of the required resources for specific mitigation of risk alternatives is necessary. (Committee for Oversight and Assessment of U.S. Department of Energy Project Management, National Research Council, 2005) Last of all, it is important to "communicate planning results to all project participants for implementation."
