Penny was in Oxford on 1st December, presenting on ‘Making Risk Management Work’ to a large group of project managers. The group included risk managers from a huge range of industries, including defence, mining, power generation, mobile telephony, local government and more. We even had some post-graduates from Warwick University, researching into different aspects of risk.
We looked at various ways to bring the human aspects into risk management, focusing mainly on facilitating risk workshops. We had a wide ranging discussion, from agreeing the purpose of the evening through to how to work with ‘face’ in Asia to identify risks. You can see the outputs here, including the pitfalls people face with risk management and what works with risk workshops.
We enjoyed some Green and Black’s organic chocolate too, apart from the one person who prefered a sweet. (Thank you for your lovely illustration of how people differ!)
