- Where We Work
Project managers and CEOs alike often look at me like I’m crazy when I advocate that they disclose all their risks — the things that could go wrong, even if the chances are slim that they will. I’ve been doing this for many years and still get “the look”. If this seems like a given to you, read no further. Otherwise, let me explain.
Why is this a good idea? Quite simply, because it is both necessary and ultimately helpful to have the conversation, first with yourself, then with others, rather than relying on flawless execution, faith or luck. To not assess and analyze these risks is unwise and irresponsible (even if intimidating or seemingly pointless).
When talking with others, initially select only those who are able to help articulate what they see as the real risk factors, and either help you determine how to best manage them, coming up with mitgating factors, or at least provide well-informed feedback about mitigation plans made thus far. There are no set formulas for figuring out the best solutions, and what matters most is that you take the conversation seriously and commit to doing this important work.
Best case, you’ll improve your business plans with backup or contingency plans (and earmark funding accordingly); worst case, you’ll have done your homework and faced the elephant in the boardroom.
This process ultimately helps you and your team stare down the risk factors, look them square in the eyes, and decide what you’d do if lightning struck and the thing that really “shouldn’t” happen actually does.
To the surprise of many, there are simple solutions to many “beyond our control” risks, including various types of insurance, contractual guaranties, enhancements, and more. For some of the commercial and political insurance solutions available, go here.
