  • Medium: Risk that has the potential to slightly impact project cost, project schedule or performance. 
  • Low: Risk that has relatively little impact on cost, schedule or performance.

Probability of Occurrence: This column should be populated with the estimated probability that the risk will at some point become a project issue.
