Getting Started

Every program or organization conducts risk management on some level, no matter how large or small they are. Whether you are acquiring, developing and operating software-intensive systems or systems of systems, the risk management approach you use is integral to success. Even though most programs and organizations implement some type of risk management approach preventable failures continue to occur because of:

  • Uneven and inconsistent application of risk-management practice
  • Significant gaps in risk-management practice
  • Ineffective integration of risk-management practice
  • Increasingly complex management environment

Our Tools and Methods can help you make a paradigm shift to a systemic approach to risk management. Or we can help you improve your current risk management approach.
