Project risk is an uncertain event that can have a positive or negative effect on a project objective. Risks have causes and, if they occur, consequences. On the flip side, projects also present opportunities that can be used to the advantage of the project. 

Effective risk management begins with identification of both risks and opportunities. Understanding and documenting the connection between your project's Risks and its Opportunities will help your team to understand how best to deliver value.
