Risk data quality assessment

Marlena Walburg

Project management consists of many elements that may seem complicated if you do not deal with it daily, or its quantity seems overwhelming. The point is that the decision-making process in the case of proper, reliable and eventually successful project implementation and development needs to involve risk management and similar methods. Among all of the important tasks, organisations must evaluate collected data and project knowledge to assure its highest quality degree and, after all, safety, usability, and goal fulfilment. Therefore, Project Managers and other team members responsible for project management have handy tools and techniques to make proper decisions and evaluate information reliably. One of them is Risk Data Quality Assessment. The process involves key factors that need to be considered to search and avoid risks related to data. Keep on reading to know more about this technique and useful information on this subject.

What is risk data quality assessment?

Risk Data Quality Assessment is a project management method that is used to assess the level or extent to which risk data is necessary to manage risk. It also analyses other factors such as the accuracy, reliability, quality and integrity of risk data. Assessing the quality of risk data focuses on ensuring that the information used in carrying out the risk analysis is reliable and unbiased. Assesses information by asking if the data is reliable, of high quality, accurate and adequately understood. If the information is unreliable, it is significantly less expensive to repair than the impact of the risk if the project is continued. Therefore, assessing the quality of risk data is often used in project management. The long-term benefits of Risk Data Quality Assessment include greater team cohesion and better communication between project participants and the executive team, better understanding of project problems and potential solutions, and improved project estimates and schedules.

What is data quality assessment?

Data quality assessment is the process of evaluating data to determine whether it meets the quality required for projects or business processes and whether it is of the right type and quantity actually to meet the intended purposes of its use. The Data Quality Assessment process provides guidelines and techniques for data description, data evaluation, and data quality improvement processes. It helps to reveal possible business and technical data problems, which contributes to better data strategy planning. The Data Quality Assessment processes are based on best practices and consider data quality in the context of availability, methodological and content correctness, serviceability, accuracy and reliability. Data Quality Assessment is typically performed to ensure that data-driven and data-driven processes perform as expected and remedy subjective problems associated with business processes.

How do you collect information from a risk assessment?

The key to a suitable risk assessment is collecting good data. This data, in turn, will be used to discover the most important threats and help in the development of risk response scenarios. Information in the risk assessment process is collected in various ways and may take multiple forms. It is also important to correctly identify them, consider them according to the key risk criteria, and determine the scale of their potential problem. The main approaches to compiling data for risk analysis include interviews and research on data from previous projects, both by the company and published in research reports. Collecting data for risk quality data assessment is a long, demanding process that requires a great deal of intuition and appropriate knowledge. Ultimately, the organised, identified, categorised and ranked risks require proper analysis such as a probability/impact matrix or Monte Carlo simulation. After all the processes of determining the risk scale and its essence, the ready report is a tool to draw appropriate conclusions and take action to prevent the emergence of drastic development of risks in the project.


Project management requires valuable metrics to adequately address all issues, also taking into account the risks associated with data quality. Risk Data Quality Assessment helps organizations get valuable insight into possible hazardous events that may occur when data is not properly collected, stored, analysed or generally managed. It helps save a lot of time and minimise the potential expenses for fixing errors in a later stage of development. The key is to properly perform all procedures and research related to this technique, and the project team will definitely take advantage of it.
