Project Assignment 2

For this week you will return into the Planview Daptiv PPM tool and continue working on the project that you created
previously. Complete the below tasks as related to risks and expense management. As you learned from the readings, a
project manager is tasked with identifying risks along with determine mitigation strategies to reduce the likelihood of
the risk to occur (or if the risk is a positive one, increase the likelihood for it to occur).

risk from occurring

b. Edit the task and put a % Complete of 100%
8. Flag the third task as 50% complete
a. Do this by either:
a. Double clicking the status field of a task, and click ‘Mark as in Progress (50%)’ (or)
b. Edit the task and put a % Complete of 50%
9. Next, we’ll complete a project status update – which typically is performed weekly by Project Managers
