Rogaland Branch - What I talk about when I talk about risk management

February 21, 2019
5:00 PM - 7:30 PM

Santander Consumer Bank
Strandkaien 42
Stavanger, 4005

Risk management concepts have their origin in rolling of dices and insurance statistics. In projects we do not observe random events; we manage events and act continually on dynamic environments. In a project context, we have clear goals we are tasked to achieve. We have a plan that includes the things we, as professionals know we need to do to achieve it. 

With the plan in hand, ‘risk assessment’ is about taking the pessimistic hat on and asking “what could possibly happen and prevent us from achieving the goal?”. Risk assessment is about structuring the concerns, discussing, communicating and making decisions on mitigation activities.  Project risk is not about stochastic modelling. Probabilities can help express uncertainty but are not important in the end. Effective actions and responses are.
