Risk Management—for Adults
“We’ll deal with that … if and when it happens.” Most of us are good at risk management in our personal lives, so why can’t we handle risk management well in the office? Our work is full of risk, uncertainty, assumptions, and expectations. Decisions often have to be made with only limited information. We have to deal with all of this. And if we don’t manage our risk at work, time will. To actually practice risk management, Tim Lister introduces his Hurricane Model of Uncertainty. He explains his favorite way of performing risk analysis and risk assessment, discusses why estimation is a key to sound risk management, and shares why estimation has to be completely divorced from goal setting. Finally, Tim examines how you can eventually convert risk management into “business as usual” in your organization. Join Tim to see how you can improve your risk management in the office setting.
