  1. PMP Solution 63

    The Plan Risk Management process should begin when a project is conceived and should be completed early in the project. It may be necessary to revisit this process later in the project life cycle, for example at a major phase change, or if the project scope changes significantly, or if a subsequent review of risk management effectiveness determines that the Project Risk Management process requires modification. An update of the risk register would not require a review of this process for modification. Therefore, right answer is B. [PMBOK 6th edition, Page 402] [Project Risk Management]


  2. if there is an update of risk register, there may be addition or deletion of risk in it. then there must be review of the risk management process to encounter the new risk added in the risk register. I disagree with the answer. please correct if , I am wrong.

  3. Hi Hendry,

    Thanks for your comment! Well, Project Risk Management process is about defining how to conduct risk management activities for a project. Therefore, an update to the risk register does not require this process to be perform again. It will require other processes to be perform but not this one.
