Organizational success in software industry is completely dependent on accomplishment in terms of successful project delivery that results in client satisfaction associated with end user requirements. This victory can be sustained if the IT industry is able to cope up with all the challenges involved in software development targeted towards either product development or providing a service. One of the major challenges that can be listed as a key encounter in software development is Risk. Growth of an industry can take up well-defined criteria with respect to attainment of success if Risk management implements an efficient technique. This risk has to be measured foremost in terms of Cost, Time, People and Process (CTP2) to understand the impact of the same in the project. This paper aims to classify various Risks based on the impact analysis which is conducted in terms of CTP2 . This mode of classification enables one to prioritize the risk in order to mitigate or deal with it effectively.
