9 Top Ten Reasons Why Risk Management Is Important

10 Reason #1 The future is uncertain © RMstudy.com. All rights reserved

11 Our house painting project Will it rain on the day we plan to paint? What if the paint sprayer we borrowed does not work? What if we dont buy enough paint? What if one of our helpers falls off a ladder? © RMstudy.com. All rights reserved

12 Reason #2 Risk threatens the very reason your organization exists © RMstudy.com. All rights reserved

13 Our house painting project What risks do we face, if we do not paint? If our house develops mold, it could be condemned. If we do not paint and the eaves develop dry-rot, we might have to re-roof the house. © RMstudy.com. All rights reserved

14 Reason # 3 Not all risks are manageable, so managing the ones you can is essential © RMstudy.com. All rights reserved

15 Our house painting project What risks threaten our house that we cannot manage? Mudslide Earthquake © RMstudy.com. All rights reserved

16 Reason # 4 Risk threatens organizational profitability © RMstudy.com. All rights reserved

17 Our house painting project What accidents can make our house painting cost us more than we expected? Spilled paint (clean-up and paint replacement) Put ladder through a window © RMstudy.com. All rights reserved

18 Reason # 5 Risks threatens employee success © RMstudy.com. All rights reserved

19 Our house painting project We have hired two teenagers to help us on Saturday and we want to get all the painting done on that day. What risks could keep them from being successful? Not having the prep work done for them to begin on time. Running out of paint before they are through. Not buying enough pizza for lunch. © RMstudy.com. All rights reserved

20 Reason # 6 Risk provides unpredicted opportunities to out-perform goals and projections © RMstudy.com. All rights reserved

22 Reason # 7 Risk can result in litigation © RMstudy.com. All rights reserved

23 Our house painting project How could a new coat of paint land us in court? We accidentally splashed paint on the neighbors new Maserati. We put our ladder through someone elses window. That woman living next door sues us because our color clashes with the rest of the neighborhood. © RMstudy.com. All rights reserved

24 Reason # 8 Risk changes © RMstudy.com. All rights reserved

25 Our house painting project Prior to 1978, paints used on private dwellings could contain leadan ingredient that made paint last longer. After studies revealed how toxic lead is to humans, it was banned for use in house painting, toys and applications where humans could come into direct contact with the paint. How can we protect ourselves against a situation such as this with our house painting project? Buy house paint thats been approved by safety organizations © RMstudy.com. All rights reserved
