Risk assessment and risk calculation There are two methods to calculate the risk of a change: Change Risk Calculator (activated by default) and Change Management Risk Assessment (an optional plugin). Change Management Risk Assessment uses information provided by the end user to assess a risk value. Change Risk Calculation uses predefined properties and conditions to calculate a risk value. The two methods can be used individually or together, depending on your requirements. If both methods are used together, the highest risk value from both methods is always selected. Figure 1. Risk assessment and calculation Note: If both Risk Assessment and Risk Calculation are active but you want to use only one method, then remove all conditions for the method that you do not want to use. Define risk assessmentThe Change Management - Risk assessment plugin provides a flexible way to capture information from the end user to calculate the risk of the associated change request. You can define the risk assessment questions, thresholds, and conditions based on which the risk for a particular change request is calculated.Identify risk conditionsThe Best Practice- Change Risk Calculator enables dynamic calculations of the risk and impact of a change, which are displayed on the change record.
