Providing Support to You and Your Organisation
Specialising in risk management – especially the crucial areas of business continuity, and emergency planning – we provide research, advice, plans, and the facilitation of reviews, exercises, debriefings, and training.
We work with you to address the key tests of due care.
We focus on the questions around “what you should be reasonably expected to know, and do – about risks and their management“. Unlike courts and inquests – which ask after the event – we address these tests before a crisis.
When supporting you to ensure you are asking the best questions, we apply the “Double Diamond” approach which builds powerful engagement with our clients and provides a quality framework – ensuring discipline and accountability.
“In all creative processes a number of possible ideas are created (‘divergent thinking’) before refining and narrowing down to the best idea (‘convergent thinking’), and this can be represented by a diamond shape.
The Double Diamond indicates that this happens best when it happens twice – once to confirm the problem definition or scope and once to create or implement the solution. One of the greatest mistakes is to omit the left-hand diamond and end up solving the wrong problem.” (Design Council, accessed 2019)
Our approach has been respected since 1987 for “preventing disasters, or where that is not possible, reducing the potential for harm” Ref: Barrister H Selby Inquest Handbook
