Hi,

I have a question. Is the contingency plan and fallback plan created together as part of 'Plan Risk Responses'? Or is a fallback plan created only if the contingency plan is found to be not fully effective in the 'Monitor Risks' process?

Hi, the Contingency plan is the Fallback plan. See PMBOK 11.5, p439, the paragraph right above 11.5.1.
This concept is also in PMBOK 11.5.2.6.
Whenever I had a question, I found going back to PMBOK is really helpful. Plus, I use the electronic copy so I can search easily.

Ah, I see. Thank you. Rita Mulcahy's book tells otherwise. In the book, a fallback plan is mentioned as the plan you develop if the contingency plan didn't work as expected.
