Risk Management

James ROBERTSON

Research output: A Conference proceeding or a Chapter in BookChapter

Abstract

Risk is unavoidable at a personal and organizational level. Risk can be viewed as having negative consequences but proper risk management can have positive outcomes. For science, risk management is a specific requirement to achieve innovation. Doing so requires risk management strategies that are holistic, incorporated into the quality system and balance the likelihood of an event with the potential consequence and impact. A risk management framework and plan should hence be proportionate as well as comprehensive. Risk management also needs to be dynamic and not fixed.
