Risk Topics



These are helpful downloads that I've made to assist with the creation of a risk management function at an enterprise, or to assist with project risk management.


This is a version of this website, boiled down to a presentation.

Controls matrix template

Organization chart template

This is a spreadsheet that may be filled in and then imported to MS Visio to make a familiar org chart.


Process manual template

A template Word document (.docx) that puts together all of the pieces, including sections for: document identification; statements of purpose, policies, and procedures; roles; governance; and document management. The latter contains information on how the processes are measured and corrected, and when and how the policies are reviewed. The template also has a place for linking in controls, either from an auditor's list or your own internal list.
