Techniques   »   Risk Management   »   Assumptions


Anything that your project expects or presumes will be in place or that your project expects or presumes will occur before, during or after the project is documented here. Assumptions can be defined at the start of the project but they almost universally appear exponentially as the project progresses. This is why it is important they are documented and communicated to make sure your project team can see when an assumption arrived and who documented it. In this way errors are not slipped through the back door to appear later as unattained assumptions. For example you want to ensure that business requirements or environment specifications that have been missed or forgotten are not morphed in secret as assumptions.

Assumptions that are not going to be satisfied or will not occur are transferred to the risks part of your RAID Log. Assumptions that are known are documented in the Assumptions part of your RAID Log. Anything else NOT documented is not going to happen; so if anyone on the project wants something specific it needs documenting in the Risks or the Assumptions.
