Explaining Risk Management
Simply put, Risk Management is about:
Understanding all the possible things that might happen. Estimating the consequences of those events and situations, how they might affect our ability to achieve our objectives, and the likelihood of those effects. Determining whether those consequences are acceptable or desirable. Taking action to modify, as best we can, the consequences and/or their likelihood.
