I just noticed that we have a tag and a tag. I'm not sure I really see a difference. There's also a tag.

Is there a good reason to not merge these together? Or would it be easier to find questions about risks if these questions all shared a common tag?

  • Maybe "risk" is more about individual risks? As long as it isn't a meta-tag, it just might need some redefinition on where to apply it.

  • Hi @CodeGnome, I looked at the questions in both tags, and they all seem geared towards risks in a project, not really risks that affect individual people. There are 23 questions tagged "risk" and 29 tagged "risk-management". 12 of the questions share both tags. If you don't mind taking a look as well, that would be awesome, as I'm thinking of retagging them all as risk-management if no one sees any strong reason not to.

  • If you merge them, I'd recommend merging to risk-management because that's more specific, less meta, and more likely to draw attention to controls than instead of "what can go wrong?" lists.

  • @CodeGnome - Awesome! This reminds me to go ahead and knock this out. :) Thanks!

I'd put risk and risk management in the same bucket of being general categories of which schedule risk is a sub-set. There's not a huge volume of any particular one.

I'd vote for merging them all into risk management. Strikes me as more project management oriented and thus more likely to be a match for a search on the topic (from Google or within PMSE).
