Can you manage uncertainty in three straightforward steps?

Management processes should always be as simple as possible – yet as complex as is necessary.

First, clear, understandable, straightforward risk statements come out of mindful conversations about context.

Second, we assess risks – not as an academic exercise – but in order to determine whether we need to do anything about those risks. So it’s important to do that both rigorously and consistently – with strong criteria based decision making processes.

Third, effective risk treatments are also best determined by applying rigorous, consistent criteria.
