When making a checklist, this allows the user to be able to stay more organized when you have a lot to do. The same can be said for business. In Salesforce, a checklist can be made for those who own and run businesses. The checklist is most likely used for managers in a business. When a manager is given a checklist, then he or she can be evaluated using this list to make sure all things are getting done in an effective manner.

However, some business owners believe that if something is not done on the checklist, this will show the risks or problems with a project. However, this is a disadvantage to using only checklists. When you develop a checklist that is all-inclusive, it may not reveal any risks.

Developing a comprehensive checklist may be difficult;-the major disadvantage to using only checklists to identify potential project risks is that developing a comprehensive checklist may be difficult. checklists are often used to list the types of risks present for a project. often, using checklists is the simplest method of determining risks. however, for large projects it may be difficult to construct a checklist that covers all of the areas of risk on a project. it is better to use multiple methods to identify risks. this helps to ensure that all risks have been identified. a checklist is a non-graphical representation. however, this does not present a specific disadvantage to using them. checklists cannot provide a quantitative value associated with each risk. during risk identification, it is not necessary to quantify each risk. therefore, this would not be a disadvantage of using checklists in risk identification. risks are quantified during quantitative risk analysis. if properly constructed, checklists do take into account historical information and lessons learned from other projects.
