Real Risk Register

Welcome to this crowd-sourced risk register!

Over time, we will end up collecting a rich list of risks that have been identified in many different initiatives and some ideas as to the possible responses and their effectiveness. Caveat emptor: the data is only as good as what is entered.

If you’d like to add your experience, please do. The more data points there are, the more useful the database becomes.

Click here to go to the data entry page

Here’s the database. For reasons of space, it is set up in the planning view (what risks were identified). You can sort it, and you can search for particular words.  If you want to see the full record of a risk event (minus identifying data fields), click the link. Choose that link also if you want to edit the record (only the person who entered it, or the site admins, can edit it).
