Order Description
Individual Assignment #2
This assignment has two parts.
Using the Internet or the library, find an article about an IT project that failed.
Part 1: Using the IT project risk framework (Marchewka, pp 252-254), identify at least
four explicit or implicit risks that may have impacted the project. For each of the risks
you identify, provide an analysis of the risk, assign one of the Risk Strategies (pp. 229-
230) (accept or ignore, avoidance, mitigate, transfer) and summarize your response in
terms of:
? Risk Description – describe the risk.
? Risk Impact – how did the occurrence of the threat (or opportunity) affect the
? Risk Response – (since this already occurred) two parts: (1) what was the
response to the risk and how effective; (2) if you had been creating and
maintaining a risk management plan, what would your planned recommended
response have been?
Part 2: What other risks would you have tracked for this project? Summarize your
response in terms of:
? Risk Description – (as above)
? Risk Trigger – what may alert you of this risk
? Risk Ranking – how serious might this risk be
? Recommended Response – (as above)
Please complete one certification for both parts of this assignment.
