Principles

Principles

The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) identifies the following principles of risk management:
Risk management should:

  • create value – resources expended to mitigate risk should be less than the consequence of inaction or (as in value engineering), the gain should exceed the pain
  • be an integral part of organizational processes
  • be part of decision making process
  • explicitly address uncertainty and assumptions
  • be a systematic and structured process
  • be based on the best available information
  • be tailorable
  • take human factors into account
  • be transparent and inclusive
  • be dynamic, iterative and responsive to change
  • be capable of continual improvement and enhancement
  • be continually or periodically re-assessed

"When I am not engaged with FM consults and training, I spend time underwater as a SCUBA DiveMaster – diving in the sparkling, warm waters of the Caribbean and the Red Sea. I relish the tranquility and quiet, marvel at the spectrum of colors displayed in the marine life, and enjoy making new friends in the process."
