Risk Management Training

Anything that an organization does to try and manage risk is generally considered a step in the right direction.

Normally this begins with risk identification – the charting of risks in a way that allows organizations to identify the more common and serious risks so that they know the areas to which they need to commit resources.

Identifying risks in business decisions is much the same as with the process of identifying any risk. The key is to be thorough and use all the sources available. These risks can be prioritized and mapped in the same way as all other risks.

Often risk is broken down into two general terms:

Speculative Risk — Risks where the possible outcomes are either a loss, profit or status quo. It includes things like stock market investments and business decisions such as new product lines, new locations, etc.

Pure Risk — Risks where the possible outcomes are either a loss or no loss. It includes things like fire loss, a building being burglarized, having an employee involved in a motor vehicle accident, etc.

Organizations that have embraced a risk management culture are often at odds on how much to spend on risk management. The process enterprises undertake to identify and mitigate risk should incorporate business considerations from the very beginning, so proper analysis of the risk management program and associated expense can take place.

Risk management is often thought of as a process involving various steps: risk identification, risk analysis, risk prioritization, risk assignment, risk response and monitoring the risk.

Arguably, the most important steps in the process are identifying and analyzing risk. Identifying risk involves communicating with a wide spectrum of individuals associated with your organization – team members, colleagues and stakeholders. Look both forward and backward. That is, imagine the project in progress. Think of the many things that can go wrong. Note them. Do the same with historical data on past projects.

Drill down to the root cause to see if the risk is one that will have the kind of impact on your project that needs identifying.

Analyzing risk is hard. It often seems like there is never enough information you can gather. Of course, a lot of that data is complex, but most industries have best practices, which can help you with your analysis. There is no one best way to analyze risk, but a combination qualitative and quantitative approaches is a good start. Risk factors are often determined by now the risk impacts your project across a variety of metrics.
