A risk is a potential event, either internal or external to a project, that, if it occurs, may cause the project to fail to meet one or more of its objectives.
One of the main aims of risk management is to provide feedback from experiential learning to improve the risk management of future projects, and to inform the training and development of project managers. Risk feedback is a process by which such information is gathered and evaluated for inclusion in a risk management plan.
