Eliminating every single risk in a complex operation is impossible, in fact even in simple projects you can never predict or eliminate all risks. This means that you must accept a certain level of risk.  Determining whether a risk is acceptable or not can be difficult though. A lot of factors can affect perception of …

Swiss Cheese ModelšŸ§€Ā 

In recent years, the study of safety and risk assessments has become more important and isĀ used in different fields of risk management. A model used to assess risk is the Swiss Cheese Model by James Reason. The model can beĀ used to understand how negative outcomes occur and how to prevent them. Ā It was originally developed …

The 5 Why MethodĀ 

Introduction: This investigative method aims to uncover the complex relationship between cause and effect, revealing underlying issues. By asking 'why' repeatedly, it peels away layers of complexity until the root cause is exposed. Typically, five rounds of questioning are enough to lessen human errors like bias and assumptions, recognizing that problems don't always follow a …

risk management

It does not have to be time consuming, complicated and expensive. But unfortunately it is most of the timeā€¦ Especially in complex projects!

That is why we use risk management tools!

In risk management there is a number of tools, or methods, one can use to identify, rate and mitigate risk. These methods are a combination of simple and inexpensive ones, such as a brainstorming exercise. To the more complicated, expensive and time consuming ones, such as organisational risk governance and organisational risk communication.

Ishikawa diagram

Introduction  The Ishikawa Diagram, also known as the Fishbone diagram, is a tool used to visually explore and identify possible root causes of a specific event. The Diagram resembles a fish skeleton, with the head being the event in question and potential causes represented as the fishbones protruding from the spine. Why use the Ishikawa …

Educational Examples

With educational examples, our goal is to present the reader with situations or projects where a risk became an incident. By analysing what went wrong and what should have been done, we can hopefully provide valuable knowledge to the reader.

What went wrong

In these educational examples we present a case where a specific project or part of the projects have gone wrong. We try to examine where the ā€œpoint-of-no-returnā€ is (i.e., where the risk became an incident).

What should have been done

Then, when we know where the project went wrong, we will go back in time before the ā€œpoint-of-no-returnā€ and see what could have been done differently to avoid the risk becoming an incident.

What can we learn

By doing so, we can provide valuable knowledge and ā€œexperienceā€ to, hopefully, get your critical thinking going, so you can avoid the same incidents in your projects!
