The paper explains the elements of the project risk management process that aims to minimize project risk and discusses the value of a detailed and concise risk register. The paper then discusses the importance of breaking down risks and categorizing them as to their impact and likelihood in affecting project completion and identifies four ways to handle risks. The paper looks at the positive outcome of risk management and concludes by answering the question posed at the start of the paper, namely, to what degree is it possible to meaningfully manage risks in project management. The paper asserts that one can manage risks to the degree the project manager and the project team prepared their project management plan to the minutest detail possible.
