Do you remember the Risk Management Procedure from your PRINCE2 course? I think that what PRINCE2 described is pretty good, self contained and covers the basics. If you want to do more then you could look at Management of Risks, but more on that later.
Do you remember the risk identification techniques? P81 of the manual, by the way but they are Lessons, Checklists, Prompt lists, Brainstorming and Breakdown structure. If you look at Prompt lists the PRINCE2 manual says "These are publicly available lists that categorize risks into types or areas and are normally relevant to a wide range of projects. Risk prompt lists are useful aids to help stimulate thinking about sources of risk in the widest context ".
So where do you get these from? Well I was reminded of a most overlooked source by one of the participants of an PRINCE2 Re-registration course I was running last week. The previous version of PRINCE2 was much longer and the latest version is cut down (somewhat). One thing that was removed was the PRINCE2 Checklist of Risk Categories. Click on this and you will be able to download a scan of it. I am sure you will find it useful
Yes on again tonight....
