Risk is an inevitable part of our daily lives. After all, many of mankind’s greatest achievements, such as landing on the moon, would not have been possible without taking risks. Breaking the speed of sound also required considerable risk-taking, as did reaching the summit of Mount Everest. It is worth remembering, indeed, that not all risk is “bad” or has bad outcomes.
However, where businesses are concerned, planning for bad risk, having appropriate processes in place is simply essential. This is especially the case during periods of economic instability and unpredictability, when competition is particularly fierce. After all, three or four months out of the market owing to a warehouse fire could threaten a company’s very survival.
Consequently, businesses are increasingly on the lookout for experts in formal risk planning, as well in executing such plans when disaster actually strikes.
Risk Management has, in the past decade or so, become increasingly professionalised, and is subject to methodology authored by international project management institutes and standards set, for example by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO). The Risk Management professionals who these days join organisations really know their stuff, and can be of genuine help and practical support to beleaguered CEOs.
