Fortunately, wider appreciation of risk is not entirely forgotten and is sometimes used as one of several factors used in the prioritization of task (Cohn 2010). Moreover process risk is a topic discussed at length in (Boehm and Turner 2009) though a more condensed version can also be found in (Boehm and Turner 2003).

Reporting might also extend to an aggregate view of risks as a portfolio together with monetized estimates of overall risks Determination of appropriate risk response strategies (see Table 6) together with specific countermeasures or contingency plans.
Ultimately the risk character of the project must be made clear to project members from the outset along with the manner in which risk and reward should be balanced.
