Selecting and implementing the right treatment options for addressing risk requires a range of methods and techniques. Too often, we identify the wrong risk therefore throw resource at th wrong treatment or control.
Monitor and Review
Monitoring and review is about assuring and improving the quality and effectiveness of process design, implementation and outcomes. We often assume that documented treatments and controls are in place, yet have very little evidence of their effectiveness.
Recording and Reporting
The risk management process and its outcomes should be documented and reported through appropriate mechanisms. Remember, its about quality, not quantity!
It's easier to identify what is fragile (e.g. champagne glass) than to predict what might harm it! Learn how to thrive on uncertainty, disorder, errors and stressors?
Human factors are the leading cause to the majority of risk failures around the World. Learn how to reduce complexity and re focus on the most fragile part of risk management… which is people.
