A project list of actions is probably the single biggest risk mitigation step you can take.
These actions can tracked in a Word or Excel document or using an online tool.
Action Item List Template (Word version)
Your action plan should identify the major actions that need to be taken to successfully compete your project and who will be responsible and a due date. These actions will be derived from the steps described in this module. The action plan should include steps that will be taken to mitigate major project risks.
Coordinate this action plan with all internal and external interfacing groups. Maintain this action list through the life of the project!
