These I2.1 Red Flag Items tools provide a framework for managing risks through a for- malized monitoring and control process.

This chapter discussed guidance for risk management in the planning phase. The outcome of this discussion is a map or guide to the risk management tools provided in Appendix A. 5.6.4 Planning Phase Risk Monitoring The planning phase focuses efforts on risk identification. and Control Relationship Moderately complex and major projects that are specifically to Project Complexity identified in the planning phase can employ some level of risk A Red Flag Item (I2.1) list should only be applied for risk assessment and analysis efforts particularly near the end of monitoring and control on those projects where planning re- the planning phase.
