Risks are influencing factors that can adversely affect the outcome of your delivery. Tracking these risks helps improve team visibility and drive mitigation. Risks are typically owned and managed by Product Managers and Release Train Engineers (RTEs).

In Jira Align, risks display in the Risks Grid, shown above. You can view the risk status, impact, and owner, as well as other risk data. You can also filter the list or search for specific risks.

Jira Align provides a robust ROAM-based risk management model:

  • Resolved. A risk is addressed and is no longer a concern.
  • Owned. Someone takes responsibility for a risk.
  • Accepted. Nothing more can be done. If the risk occurs, the release may be compromised.
  • Mitigated. Team has a plan to adjust if necessary.
