The ultimate purpose of risk identification and analysis is to prepare for risk mitigation. This chapter discusses the importance of risk mitigation planning and describes approaches to reducing or mitigating project risks. Risk management planning needs to be an ongoing effort that cannot stop after a qualitative risk assessment, or a Monte Carlo simulation, or the setting of contingency levels.

Risk management includes front-end planning of how major risks will be mitigated and managed once identified. Therefore, risk mitigation strategies and specific action plans should be incorporated in the project execution plan, or risk analyses are just so much wallpaper.

Risk mitigation plans should. Characterize the root causes of risks that have been identified and quantified in earlier phases of the risk management process. Identify alternative mitigation strategies, methods, and tools for each major risk. Select and commit the resources required for specific risk mitigation alternatives.

This should be done prior to completing the project design or allocating funds for construction. Risk mitigation planning should continue beyond the end of the project by capturing data and lessons learned that can benefit future projects. Some risks, once identified, can readily be eliminated or reduced. However, most risks are much more difficult to mitigate, particularly high-impact, low-probability risks.

Therefore, risk mitigation and management need to be long-term efforts by project directors throughout the project. If a project is determined to have a low level of uncertainty, then the optimal policy is to proceed expediently in order to increase the present value of the project by completing it as soon as possible and thereby obtaining its benefits sooner. Fixed-price contracts, perhaps with schedule performance incentives, are appropriate for this type of project.

Everything else being equal, projects that take longer generally cost more and deliver less value to the owner. Many projects take longer than they should, in part due to dilatory decision-making processes and the lack of a sense of urgency.

However, when a project has some uncertainty, a full-speed-ahead approach may not be optimal. In such projects, scope changes and iterative recycling of the design are the norm, not the exception.

Regulatory issues also provide a fertile source of uncertainty that can cause conceptual project planning and design to recycle many times. For projects with a high degree of uncertainty, fixed-price contracts may be inappropriate, but performance-based incentive contracts can be used. Failure to recognize and anticipate changes, uncertainty, and iteration in preparing schedules and budgets can lead to unfortunate results.

The techniques and skills that are appropriate to conventional projects often give poor results when applied to projects with great potential for. For these projects, a flexible decision-making approach may be more successful. Often this approach may seem contrary to experience with conventional projects. The use of unconventional methods to manage uncertainty requires the active support of senior managers.

High-impact, low-probability events in general cannot be covered by contingencies. In these cases, the computation of the expected loss for an event as the product of the loss if the event occurs times the probability of the event is largely meaningless. If the probability of the event is estimated as 0. High-impact, low-probability events must be mitigated by reducing the impact or the likelihood, or both. But risk mitigation and management certainly are not cost-free.

In determining the budget allocation needed to mitigate high-impact, low-likelihood risks, it is necessary to identify specific risk mitigation activities. These activities should then be included in the project budget and schedule, and tracked and managed just as other critical project activities are managed.

However, risk mitigation activities may differ from other project activities in that there may be some uncertainty about whether the selected risk mitigation strategies will work—that is, the activities may be contingent on whether the risk mitigation strategies are effective. This has led to the development of a special kind of network diagram for risk mitigation activities, known as the waterfall diagram, which is described in Chapter 7.

There is a common adage about risk management—namely, that the owner should allocate risks to the parties best able to manage them. Although this sounds good, it is far easier said than done. It is impossible, for example, to assign risks when there is no quantitative measurement of them. Risk allocation without quantitative risk assessment can lead to attempts by all project participants to shift the responsibility for risks to others, instead of searching for an optimal allocation based on mutually recognized risks.

Contractors generally agree to take risks only in exchange for adequate rewards. To determine a fair and equitable price that the owner should pay a contractor to bear the risks associated with specific uncertainties, it is necessary to quantify the risks. In order to use a market-based approach to allocate risks, and to avoid unpleasant surprises and subsequent litigation, it is necessary that all parties to the agreements have full knowledge of the magnitude of the risks and who is to bear them.

Risk transfer can be entirely appropriate when both sides fully understand the risks compared to the rewards. This strategy may be applied to contractors, sureties, or insurance firms. The party that assumes the risk does so because it has knowledge, skills, or other attributes that will reduce the risk. It is then equitable and economically efficient to transfer the risks, as each party believes itself to be better off after the exchange than before and the net project value is increased by the risk transfer.

Risk buffering or risk hedging is the establishment of some reserve or buffer that can absorb the effects of many risks without jeopardizing the project.

A contingency is one example of a buffer; a large contingency reduces the risk of the project running out of money before the project is complete. Buffering can also include the allocation of additional time, manpower, machines, or other resources used by the project.

It can mean oversizing equipment or buildings to allow for uncertainties in future requirements. Risk buffering is often applied by project contractors as well as by owners. Overestimating project quantities, man-hours, or other costs is a form of buffering used by many project participants. Contractors and sub-contractors may compensate by overestimating project or activity durations.

Schedule buffers allow contractors to adjust their workforce and resource allocations within projects and across multiple projects. If the bidding pool is small, or if the owner is not knowledgeable, there may be inadequate controls on scope creep, cost creep, and schedule creep. Risk avoidance is the elimination or avoidance of some risk, or class of risks, by changing the parameters of the project.

It seeks to reconfigure the project such that the risk in question disappears or is reduced to an acceptable value. The nature of the solution may be engineering, technical, financial, political, or whatever else addresses the cause of the risk.

However, care should be taken so that avoiding one known risk does not lead to taking on unknown risks of even greater consequence. Risk avoidance is an area in which quantitative, even if approximate, risk assessments are needed. For example, the project designers may have chosen solution A over alternative B because the cost of A is estimated to be less than the cost of B on a deterministic, single-point basis.

However, quantitative risk analysis might show that A is much riskier than the alternative approach B. The function of quantitative risk assessment is to determine if the predicted reduction in risk by changing from alternative A to alternative B is worth the cost differential.

Risk avoidance is probably underutilized as a strategy for risk mitigation, whereas risk transfer is overutilized—owners are more likely to think first of how they can pass the risk to someone else rather than how they can restructure the project to avoid the risk. Nevertheless, risk avoidance is a strategy that can be employed by knowledgeable owners to their advantage. Risk control refers to assuming a risk but taking steps to reduce, mitigate, or otherwise manage its impact or likelihood.

Risk control can take the form of installing data-gathering or early warning systems that provide information to assess more accurately the impact, likelihood, or timing of a risk. If warning of a risk can be obtained early enough to take action against it, then information gathering may be preferable to more tangible and possibly more expensive actions. Risk control, like risk avoidance, is not necessarily inexpensive.

If the project is about developing a new product, and competition presents a risk, then one solution might be to accelerate the project, even at some. An example of a risk control method is to monitor technological development on highly technical one-of-a-kind projects. The risk is that the promised scientific development will not occur, requiring use of a less desirable backup technology or cancellation of the project.

Many projects experience high levels of uncertainty in many critical components. Some of these important risks cannot be adequately characterized, so optimal risk mitigation actions cannot be determined during project planning. This is common when uncertainties will be reduced only over time or through the execution of particular project tasks. For example, the uncertainty about the presence of specific chemical pollutants in a water supply may be reduced only after project initiation and partial completion.

Under these circumstances commitment to specific risk management actions during planning makes project success a gamble that the uncertainty will be resolved as assumed in planning. The following are examples of flexible decision making that can help mitigate risks under conditions of uncertainty:. Defer some decisions until more data are obtained in order to make better decisions based on better information.

Good decisions later may be preferable to bad decisions sooner, particularly if these decisions constrain future options. It may be argued that deferring decisions is never desirable because to do so might delay the project, but this is a fallacy of deterministic thinking.

When uncertainty is high, poor decisions made too early will delay the project much more, or even cause it to be canceled due to resulting budget and schedule overruns. In these circumstances, deliberately deferring decisions may be good management practice, but it is essential that the project be scheduled such that deferred decisions reduce rather than increase the risks of delays.

A flexible policy of delaying decisions should not be equated with simple procrastination or wishful thinking. Decisions should be delayed only when, based on analysis, there are solid reasons to believe that new information will be forthcoming that will affect the decision one way or another.

If there is no such expectation, then the project manager should consider whether it might be cost-effective to acquire more information even at additional cost. For example, an expanded boring program to identify subsurface conditions, an expanded testing program to characterize wastes, or.

Restructure the project such that the impact of early decisions on downstream conditions is minimized. Decisions that constrain future decisions and eliminate options should be reconsidered. Safety factors may be added to buffer the effect of decisions. For example, something may be oversized to provide a safety factor against high uncertainty in requirements, just as safety factors are used in engineering design to provide a margin against uncertainty in loads; the higher the uncertainty, the greater the contingency in the load factor.

If a building must be built before the contents are known precisely, then oversizing the building may well be prudent. These safety factors typically increase project costs, but they may increase them far less than the alternative strategies for mitigating risk or the consequences of an undersized building. Stage the project such that it is reviewed for go or no-go decisions at identifiable, discrete points.

These decision points should be built into the front-end plan. Based on updated information available at these future times, the project may be modified, continued, or terminated.

Over the last several years the U. The platform will comprise a set of electronic health data standards that REMS may use to operate within the health care system and communicate with participants in a standardized way. This will help facilitate the integration of REMS tools and processes into provider and health system workflows, assuring timely patient access to REMS drugs while also reducing the complexity of complying with REMS requirements. On June 7th, the Duke-Margolis Center for Health Policy hosted a half-day expert workshop in support of next steps in this initiative. Stakeholders from across government agencies, standards development organizations, health information technology vendors, health care providers, industry, and pharmacies gathered to consider the necessary data elements and system needs to support information exchange for a specific REMS use case developed by the Agency: Health Care Prescriber Certification. Funding for this conference was made possible in part by a cooperative agreement from the Food and Drug Administration, Center for Drug Evaluation Research. The views expressed in written conference materials or publications and by speakers and moderators do not necessarily reflect the official policies of the Department of Health and Human Services nor does mention of trade names, commercial practices, or organizations imply endorsements by the U.

Risk mitigation strategies are designed to eliminate, reduce or control the impact of known risks intrinsic with a specified undertaking, prior to any injury or fiasco. To anticipate the business future, it is first essential to comprehend both the historical and actual business performance. Cumulative business data will indicate what is practical, what has been implemented, and what has worked effectively in the past. Some risks will continue to occur and recur, such as dependencies, modifications in necessities, environment and conditions and skill set gaps. Business analytics can be used to describe what is happening in the business, track performance, recognize issues that need to be addressed, and convey accurate information for analysis, planning and forecasting.

В трех тысячах миль от Вашингтона мини-автобус мобильного наблюдения мчался по пустым улицам Севильи. Он был позаимствован АНБ на военной базе Рота в обстановке чрезвычайной секретности. Двое сидевших в нем людей были напряжены до предела: они не в первый раз получали чрезвычайный приказ из Форт-Мида, но обычно эти приказы не приходили с самого верха. Агент, сидевший за рулем, повернув голову, бросил через плечо: - Есть какие-нибудь следы нашего человека. Глаза его партнера не отрывались от картинки на большом мониторе, установленном под крышей мини-автобуса. - Никаких. Продолжай движение.

Все вокруг светилось ярко-красными огнями. Шифровалка умирала. То же самое будет и со мной, - подумала .
