Accepting the Risks

Risk acceptance is the process of simply accepting the risks because no other action is feasible or because the risks are deemed to be of small probability, impact, or both and that a formal response is not warranted. Passive acceptance requires no action; the project team deals with the risks as they happen. Active acceptance entails developing a contingency plan should the risk occur. Acceptance may be used for both positive and negative risks.

A contingency plan is a predefined set of actions the project team will take should certain events occur. Events that trigger the contingency plan should be tracked. A fallback plan is a reaction to a risk that has occurred when the primary response proves to be inadequate.
