The problems with traditional risk management
100% certainty and perfect levels of communication do not exist, but the intrinsic characteristics of traditional risk management can make communication more difficult and therefore increase risk.
Effective communication is vital in any risk management process. Within programme teams there will be a number of individuals with different viewpoints. Therefore a fundamental objective of any risk management process should be to get everyone “on the same page” and to expose these differences of opinion. Traditional risk management does not encourage dialogue: as a result, different viewpoints are not shared and people are unable or reluctant to bring their own knowledge to the table. This is due to the psychology of perceived and actual negativity that surrounds risk management language.

Assumption Based Communications Dynamics – effective and efficient risk management
At De-RISK, we specialist in a form of risk management called Assumption Based Communications Dynamics (ABCD). Developed to address problems that naturally arise with traditional methods of risk management, ABCD has evolved and refined since its development in the 1990s into the most effective and efficient process in risk management. ABCD provides:
- Clear, and aligned communication – ensuring maximum communication
- Focus on positive assumptions rather than negative risks.
- True prioritisation of risks aligned to strategic objectives.
- Proactive and efficient risk action planning.
