What Is the ROAM Analysis?

ROAM analysis is a framework that allows you to identify risks and create a plan to mitigate them. The ROAM Analysis breaks down the risk into four different categories- resolved, owned, accepted, and mitigated and allows teams to collectively decide on what risks are worth working on.

How to Create a ROAM Analysis?

  • Begin by opening a ROAM Analysis template on Creately and invite various stakeholders of a particular project to the canvas
  • Start to identify and list down all the potential risks a particular project could face. After you have done that, organize them into one of the four categories below.
  • Resolved Risk: This is a risk that has been dealt with and one that no longer currently poses a threat.
  • Owned Risk: This is a risk that cannot be immediately solved and is assigned to one team member to take ownership of. It is this person’s responsibility to make sure the risk is appropriately managed.
  • Accepted Risk: Some risks cannot be reasonably managed and have to be accepted as is. Teams must fully understand the implications of these risks before accepting them.
  • Mitigated Risk: These are risks that can be reduced. The next step is for the team to develop a plan to reduce the potential impact these risks could have on the project or business.
  • After the type of risks are listed down, vote as a team to decide which risks should be prioritized.
