This study explores the need for risk assessment and also gives an overview of some standard risk management frameworks. A new task oriented framework is introduced which will help to identify the risk associated in fulfilling any objective or solving any possible problem. The approach proposes to make a common guideline to identify and assess the risk associated in any kind of organisation or project, and assists in identifying those events which require more attention in case of managing risk.
