Seeing Risks

 

I asked my project management students to create a project dashboard for the projects they’re organizing, so we can talk about what happens when the indicators go up down or sideways. One of the teams came up with a “risk constellation” chart — which I thought was a brilliant way to show risks. (If you’re wondering about the probability axis, I made data whole numbers instead of percentages, because I thought the image would be easier to read.)

I love the fact that now you can see how risks cluster — or not. I’m filing this under the category of “I wish I’d thought of it.”
