This research aimed to explore whether the PMBOK risk management process needs to change to facilitate successful project execution in the future, due to the impacts of the recent covid 19 crises. 

The researcher conducted the SLR and found no specific result addressing the need to change the PMBOK risk management process. Nevertheless, this research showed that the project manager would need to be more flexible during the planning stage of the risk management process and expand the risk identification process to plan for significant disruptive risks like the covid 19. 

The findings also suggest that project managers need to adapt to challenging situations in such a crisis. One vital theme was the need to provide psychological safety for employees. During disruptions, project managers would need to pay close attention to the effects of the crisis on individuals' psychology to ensure they work effectively
