Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 5,700 times in 2015. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 5 trips to carry that many people.

Platon’s Allegory and Risk Management

Posted on

Hello to everyone,

I was reading a book about the famous Greek philosopher Platon and his allegory about the Cave. My opinion is that the person who escapes from the cave, discovers the real world and then returns to the cave to explain it to the others is like the Risk Manager in a company.

If the company doesn’t have a proactive Risk Management Culture then the result is the same as the below video:

I am expecting your comments…

Read what some of the participants have said about their experience:

Andreas Giakoumis, PMP®, MCP, Dipl.-Ing. Civil Engineer, M.Sc. , Project Manager – Auditor at Municipality of Kavala:

“The “Project Risk Management preparation course”  of Human Asset, like the other seminars, of the same company, I had the pleasure to attend, is characterized by the detailed organization and the methodology by which it is implemented, in every aspect of the risk management knowledge area.

The program includes both the theoretical framework of the Risk Management processes and the practice on them, with a carefully designed Workshop, targeted exercises and real case scenarios, that ensures the attendee has understood the subject, answers all questions that might have arisen and prepare him to practice the profession of Risk Manager.

Regarding the instructor of the seminar: Mr. Fourtounas is very well informed and has particular expertise in the subject field of Risk Management, is very well organized and communicative and always willing to provide help or answers to any kind of questions or any circumstance.

I would highly recommend the attending of the course to anyone interested to broaden his knowledge in the Risk Management field.”

Apostolos Poulopoulos, Municipality Civil Engineer at Public Sector:

” I would like to personally thank Mr. Athanasios Fourtounas and Human asset SA for the excellent “Project Risk Management preparation course” they provide. The quality of the lectures, the  asynchronous platform and the paper material they provide, are well structured and organized.

The professionalism of the instructor on the field of Risk Management and the constant support he provides αdd value to the course.

 I have no doubts to recommend Mr. Athanasios Fourtounas course for everybody who wishes to implement risk  management in his/her personal and work environment.”

Ioannis Adamoglou, Officer at HAGS for Administration of Military Constructions:

Participating in Human Asset’s Risk Management Courses was really a great experience. Instructor Athanasios Fourtounas was committed to deliver expert and top market knowledge.

I would like to thank Thanasis for his great and organized work. His support from the beginning of the program and his ability to explain everything in the most satisfactory grade by giving always the most to the point explanations. I would definitely propose everyone from the Military Construction Sector who wants to broaden his knowledge, to participate in this program in order to acquire an important asset, which provides the impetus in his career development.”
