Reflections on Organisational and Risk Culture

Posted on

Hello to everyone,

yesterday I found the below useful booklet named ” A collection of essays written and published by Richard Anderson “ which is talking about Risk Culture.

Εικόνα16

I am quoting the first words of the Booklet:

“At the moment everyone in the risk and governance world is talking about Culture, and quite a few are talking about Risk Culture. Not many can articulate the difference between the two. In this booklet, Richard Anderson shares his thinking on the difference, and he explains why he thinks the two concepts are important to directors, regulators and all those interested in risk management. Far from being the “final word” on the subject, Richard Anderson sees this as a contribution to the thinking in the hope that later developments will rapidly build on and then supersede the ideas presented here.

Preparing for a Black Swan Risk

Posted on

Hello to everyone,

you all know that I am a fan of Nasim Taleb and one of my favorite books is “The Black The_black_swan_taleb_coverSwan: The Impact of the Highly Improbable“, released on April 17, 2007. So, during my internet research, I have found the following papers about “Black Swans Risks” and I want to share with you.

Black Swans Risks

Black Swans are defined as rare, random, and high-impact events and are characterized to be catastrophic and broad.   However, many argue these events are occurring more and more frequently: massive earthquake in Haiti (2010), coal ash spill in Tennessee (2008), and Hurricane Katrina (2005). Some skeptics believe, in hindsight, that these events should have been identified because post-event investigations found warning signs that signaled such an event was likely to occur that experts failed to see in their predictions. In reality, Black Swan events still continue to be unpredictable and unpreventable. Although you can’t prepare for every scenario, but you can establish principles and protocols to be better prepared for the unexpected. A recent thought paper by Ernst & Young explains how to do that.

Principles for Preparing for and Responding to a Black Swan

The paper provides broad-based principles that can be applied to any organization. black-swanHaving these principles in place before the Black Swan event occurs is crucial to an effective recovery. Here is a brief summary of the core principles:

  1. Establish response goals, assigning leadership to meet those goals and establishing reporting channels during the crisis.
  2. Establish immediate response goals and values in order to limit the impact before a formalized plan is developed.
  3. Empower local leadership and personnel to recognize and mitigate emerging catastrophic risks.
  4. Plan and execute redundant mitigation responses in case the primary response fails.
  5. Know your resources and how to use them during a catastrophe. Leaders should keep track of internal and external recourses including personnel, financial, and physical resources.
  6. Incorporate outside perspectives and experiences into their response strategy.taleb-5
  7. Remain objective throughout the process when analyzing, discussing, and responding to catastrophic risks.
  8. Maintain the moral high ground by planning and executing responses based on what is right, rather than planning for only the company’s best interest.
  9. Challenge your response strategy with an independent perspective to help identify weaknesses before the Black Swan does.

Response Protocols for a Catastrophe

The paper includes some basic protocols for responding to a Black Swan. The following protocols are not designed to be a step-by-step process but rather a general basis for responding:

  1. Develop risk recognition criteria in order to know when and how to respond.Black_Swan_White-Paper
  2. Develop a quick response team led by a senior manager, typically the COO. This team should include personnel from across the business functions and external advisers. The team should concentrate on containing and minimizing the event.
  3. Create a response team of leaders who should assess the situation, understand the risks faced, and response goals in order to quickly initiate the correct response plan.
  4. Develop multiple response options and categorize them base on largest contribution toward response goals.
  5. Evaluate each option by considering its risk/reward and whether the organization has the capabilities to carry out the plan. Critical assumptions should be documented during this process for future reference.Societe Generale Black Swan
  6. Implement the response following the guidelines and procedures previously established during pre-event planning.
  7. Assess continually the effectiveness of the response by making corrections as need. After the event, management should discuss lessons learned and incorporate these lessons into training and future response planning.

Conclusion

Black Swans are unpredictable but can be prepared for by establishing identification cigno-nero-black-swanmethods, response goals, and quick response strategies before the event occurs. The principles and protocols that Ernst and Young provided in this thought paper are intended to help guide your organization to establishing a response strategy. Taking this approach can provide your organization with a number of benefits including but not limited to reputation protection, a faster return normal business, and minimization of the impact.

Construction Risks and Contractors

Posted on

Hello to everyone,

In the “PM Network” magazine of April 2016 (pages 28-29) there is an interesting article about Construction Risks and Contractors. It focuses on contractors and suppliers to manage construction risks through confidence.

Cover of April 2016

I am quoting from the article:

“There is a number of risks that can be controlled or influenced through the right management of contractors and suppliers. This is because 70 to 75 percent of expenditures in capital megaprojects in the heavy engineering sector are made through these vendors. Here are the techniques for building risk control:
a. Contractor Screening

b. Bid Evaluation

c. Contract Administration

d. Support Framework

e. Application of Risk Mitigation Tools”

 

You can read the full article below:

Moreover, you can read the below relevant post:

PDU Highlights every RMP or PMP Needs to Know

Posted on

A lot of professionals are wondering: ” What’s a PDU and why do I need one?”

In a few words

A PDU is an acronym for Professional Development Unit. It’s a way of measuring continuing education and professional services for many industries. In project management, the Project Management Institute (PMI) is the leading professional training organization, and PMI has recently changed their certification and PDU requirements with their new 2016 Talent Triangle.

AAEAAQAAAAAAAANYAAAAJDNjZDhjNmNkLWZhYWMtNDE5YS04NTRlLThiZWU1MjZlZjY1Mg

In the past, Project Management and Risk Management was a decidedly technical discipline, with defined skills needed to be learned in subjects like estimating, planning, scheduling and budgeting. Now, RMPs and PMPs are expected to learn more than just technical Project and Risk Management skills. They must be proficient in a variety of skills in business management and leadership skills, too. 

PDUs are earned in two ways: through education or “giving back to the profession” which is either volunteering, sharing your knowledge by mentoring or writing articles or even participating in research.

The whole idea of certification and maintaining that status is to show that you’re invested in your job and working to stay current in the emerging technologies and methodologies. 

Also check the below link of PMI:

PMI about PDUs

Pro-Tip: Don’t wait for the last minute to begin collecting your PDUs. Be sure to design your plan like you would any project and then find the experts with which you want to fulfill your obligations.

Jennifer Bridges, answers all your questions in the below short YouTube tutorial video and explains how many PDUs you will need dependent on your certification or profession.Jennifer, in addition to being a project management trainer, is also the CEO and founder of PDUs2Go, an online provider of PDU course offerings, so she’s well versed in the details of PMI’s latest PDU requirements.

Thank you Jennifer!
