What is Risk Tolerance?

Organizations and stakeholders are willing to accept varying degrees of risk. Risk Tolerance means whether the risk can be tolerated or not. It is the willingness of the organization or a project team to accept or avoid a risk. For example, a company might have a policy that any risk that impacts their customer relationship will not be tolerated.

A project manager should understand his risk tolerance level as well as that of the project team and the organization as a whole.
