Documentation Reviews to Identify Project Risks

Documentation reviews are carried out for getting ideas on risks that may be existing/ foreseen in the project. Documentation reviews involve reviewing the project documentation, including plans, assumptions, project files, and other information in order to identify areas of inconsistency or lack of clarity. The documentation is comprehensively reviewed for completeness, accuracy and consistency. Missing, inaccurate or incomplete information and inconsistencies can be indicators of risks in the project.

The documents that could be reviewed include, but not limited to:
  • Project charter
  • Project scope statement
  • Work Breakdown Structure (WBS)
  • Project schedule
  • Cost estimates
  • Procurement plan
  • Assumptions log
