3-2 Activity: Risk Register: New Job?

QSO 355 Module Three Activity Guidelines and Rubric

Note: This activity is designed to give you practice in creating a risk register, which you will do for your final project in Milestone Two.

Complete the Module Three Risk Register Template for an upcoming hypothetical job opportunity. Many students are going through a course of study here at SNHU with the intent of eventually making some sort of a job change. It may be a promotion in a current place of employment, a new job with a different company, or a career change. Changing an aspect of your career is a multilayered risk. Complete this risk register for a possible career opportunity that you would consider upon the completion of your course of study here at SNHU. Keep in mind that risk is unknown, both negative and positive. The focus here is for you to gain an understanding of the tool. See the below example videos for background information regarding a risk register:

Specifically, the following critical elements must be addressed:

  • Risk Description: This provides a brief description of the risks (positive or negative) associated with taking on the new job opportunity.
  • Scores and Value: This provides two scores: one that provides a score (1–5) in regard to the severity of the associated risk if it were to occur. The second should provide a score (1–5) regarding the likelihood the associated risk will occur.
  • Change in Risk: This identifies the current trend of the associated risk.
  • Risk Owner: This identifies who is best suited to own the associated risk.
  • Risk Strategy: This identifies the strategy for handling the associated risk.

Please remember that this assignment is a lighthearted opportunity for you to show that you understand how a risk register is used.
