Task 7: Create a time-phased budget for your example project using bottom-up estimating. As you allocate resources to the activity your budget is being created. After you extract the Gantt chart, revisit the activity list and be sure to check direct labourcosts for you and your team has been added and add 20% for fringe.

In this section, State all assumptions andconstraints you have used when creating your budget. Give examples of known knowns andknown unknowns( these are financial risks) on your project. Describe how you have budgeted for both of them plus howyou have budgeted for unknown unknowns

Task 8: Risk Register

R21 2









R7 3









For example, the following data might be entered for the first risk in the reg¬ister as follows. Notice that Cliff's team is taking a very proactive approach in managing this risk.

- No.: R44
- Rank: 1
- Risk: New customer
- Description: We have never done a project for this organization before and don't know too much about them. One of our company's strengths is building good customer relationships, which often leads to further proj¬ects with that customer. We might have trouble working with this cus¬tomer since they are new to us.
- Category: People risk
- Root cause: We won a contract to work on a project without really getting to know the customer.
- Diggers: The project manager and other senior managers realize that we don't know much about this customer and could easily misunderstand their needs or expectations.
- Risk Responses: Make sure the project manager is sensitive to the fact that this is a new customer and takes the time to understand them. Have the PM set up a meeting to get to know the customer and clarify their expec-tations. Have Cliff attend the meeting, too.
- Risk owner. Our project manager
- Probability: Medium
- Impact High
- Status: PM will set up the meeting within the week.

After identifying risks, the next step is to understand which risks are most important by performing qualitative risk analysis.
