"Interrelationship digraph is a method to identify relationships among a set of items. Items that have a cause or effect associated on another item are linked together (and given weight) for the purpose of identifying the items most affected or items affecting other items the most, giving emphasis on those items for risk mitigation planning. Items involved in risk management could be risks being mitigated, risk strategies, project activities or resources. ...
This method fosters broad thinking of individuals to identify interrelationships of risk items that affect the whole project, determining critical risk areas that must be dealt first and ensures efficient allocation of project resources."
