This paper discusses three risk analysis methodologies, specifically, MSRAM, OCTAVE, and CRAMM and provides a detailed description of each and how they incorporate risk into a platform for decision makers to use in their endeavors to prevent, protect, mitigate, respond, and in recovery measures as part of the risk assessment and management processes.
In addition to participating in two forums in week seven, the final assignment is to complete a four to five page paper on risk-based decision making. What is risk-based decision making? Risk-based decision making is an organizational procedure that processes the likelihood of unwanted outcomes into a structured format to better help stakeholders make informed choices. This paper will draw upon the various lecture presentations from weeks one through seven, the class textbook and other applicable resources to more fully describe how risk-based decision making requires consideration of the following questions:
All organizations and industries experience risk exposure, from both internal and external events. Accordingly, with outcome speculation being uncertain, organizations can experience either negative or positive effects. In general, the IS31000 defines risk as the “effect of uncertainty on objects” (Elliott, 2012 p.1.4). Consequently, the application of risk management practices helps minimize the effects of risk uncertainty on an organization and is accomplished through coordinating an organization’s activities by establishing control and creating policies in regards to risk. Risk’s most evident category is hazard risk which encompasses risk from accidental loss. In addition, operational risk stems from controls,
As a result, the topic of ‘risk management’ can be related to a biblical passage in The Book of Ecclesiastes, Chapter 11:5-6. According to Solomon, “As thou knowest not what is the way of the spirit, nor how the bones do grow in the womb of her that is with child: even so thou knowest not the works of God who maketh all. In the morning sow thy seed, and in the evening withhold not thine hand: for thou knowest not whether shall prosper, either this or that, or whether they both shall be alike good” (2009, p. 975). Thus, as stated previously, risk consists of uncertainty and risk management is the process of mitigating such risk in order to prevent counterproductive consequences. The Lord is the all-knowing entity throughout the universe, and
Obviously, financial establishments can endure breathtaking misfortunes notwithstanding when their risk management is top notch. They are, all things considered, in the matter of going out on a limb. At the point when risk management fails, be that as it may, it is in one of the many fundamental ways, almost every one of them exemplified in the present emergency. In some cases, the issue lies with the information or measures that risk directors depend on. At times it identifies with how they recognize and impart the risks an organization is presented to. Financial risk management is difficult to get right in the best of times.
No firm can be a success without some form of risk management. Risk are the uncertainty in investments requiring an assessment. Risk assessment is a structured and systematic procedure, which is dependent upon the correct identification of hazards and an appropriate assessment of risks arising from them, with a view to making inter-risk comparisons for purposes of their control and avoidance (Nikolić and Ružić-Dimitrijevi, 2009). ERM is a practice that firms implement to manage risks and provide opportunities. ERM is a framework of identifying, evaluating, responding, and monitoring risks that hinder a firm’s objectives. The following paper is a comparison and evaluation to recommended practices for risk manage using article “Risk Leverage
Risk is a potential problem which means there is an uncertainty in the occurrence of a problem. Because of this uncertainty it is hard to find whether a particular event is going to be negative impact on the project. Risk can also be defined as the probability of suffering loss. Risks can be categorized into the following subparts:
As has been discussed before, risk identification plays an important part in the risk such as unique, subjective, complex and uncertainly. There are no two identical leaves in the world; similar, there are no two exactly the same risk either. Hence the best risk manger could not identify risk completely. Besides, risk identification assessment is done by risk analysts. As the different level of risk management knowledge, practical experience and other aspects between individuals, the result of risk identification may be difference. Furthermore, the process of identifying risk is still risky. Once risks have been identified, corporations have to take actions on limiting risky actions to reduce the frequency and severity of risky. They have to think about any lost profit from limiting distribution of risky action. So reducing risk identification risk is one of assessments in the risk
Risk mitigation is also the process of controlling actions, which are identified, and selecting the suitable ones to reduce risk according to project objectives (Pa, 2015). Risk mitigation is important in IT organizations in so many ways. According to Ahdieh, Hashemitaba, Ow (2012), mitigation of risk provides a mechanism for managers to handle risk effectively by providing the step wise execution of the risk handling (as cited in Pa, 2015, pg. 49). Some risks, once identified, can readily be eliminated or reduced. However, most risks are much more difficult to mitigate, particularly high-impact, low-probability risks. Therefore, risk mitigation and control need to be long-term efforts by IT project managers throughout the project lifecycle. There are three types of risk mitigation strategies that hold unique to Business Continuity and Disaster
The risk management process needs to be flexible. Given that, we operate in the challenging environment, the companies require the meaning for managing risk as well as continuous improvement in identifying new risks that will evolve and make allowances for those risks that are no longer existing.
Risk management is a process used in all industries to reduce the risk. The Risk management tool usage changes from sector to sector and hence each sector has developed their own risk management tools and methodologies to mitigate the risk. But the concept remains the same behind all the tools (Ropel, 2011). The main steps for risk management irrespective of the sector are:
Risk Management allows us to identify the problems which are unknown during the start of the project but may occurs later. Implementing an efficient risk management plan will ensure the better outcome of the project in terms of cost and time.
Some include risks at the enterprise level, managing risks in complex projects and dealing with turnarounds and large capital projects. Liu, Zou, & Gong (2013) explore how enterprise risk management (ERM) may influence the ability and performance of project management risk (PRM) by considering the features of the construction industry, its businesses and projects. Managing risks within projects such as these has become an important process to achieve project objectives in terms of the scope, time and cost. The results show that enterprise risk management can positively influence the implementation of project risk management. This can be achieved through implementing a risk focused culture, setting up risk management departments and setting up risk procedures. This will help control the project risk and improve the performance of project risk management. Communicating the concerns with other team members can help identify the risks earlier on rather than later in the development of the project. If the Stakeholders and managers involved are satisfied then the project outline becomes a
