  • Risks can be minimized, shared or passed on but can never be avoided. So work on risk mitigation rather than avoidance
  • The risk may sound bit negative but how about positive risks! We call it an opportunity! Go and exploit the positive risks
  • Risks are to be managed from cradle to grave in the sense right from the outset to project completion; so, ensure that your Risk Register is a live document!
