• SWOT analysis also examines the degree to which organizational strengths offset threats and opportunities that may serve to overcome weaknesses7.Expert Judgement• Risks can be identified directly by experts with relevant experience of similar projects or business areas. • Such experts should be identified by the project manager and invited to consider all aspects of the project and suggest possible risks based on their previous experience and areas of expertise.
