  • Chaos to Clarity - Book Review

     My review of "Chaos to Clarity"

     

    I enjoyed reading Mr. Mayo's discussion of risk both how to recognize and identify it as well as the process of managing it through the project life cycle. His treatment of the risk management process is both comprehensive and easy to understand.

    My review of "Chaos to Clarity"

    I enjoyed reading Mr. Mayo's discussion of risk both how to recognize and identify it as well as the process of managing it through the project life cycle. His treatment of the risk management process is both comprehensive and easy to understand.

    Too many organizations today pay lip service to the subject of managing risk and as a result their projects fail to support their intended mission, overrun costs and incur schedule delays. This is especially true in IT development projects that support  mission critical functions in both the private and public sectors.

    This book provides a refreshing, easy to understand, process that incorporates Mr. Mayo's knowledge of existing standards and guidelines and his years of practical experience to provide insight into which processes and best practices associated with the management of risk. I enjoyed reading not only his opinions and conclusions as to how to implement the various stages of managing risk, but also the rationale he used to select the right approach from the plethora of techniques outlined in the various standards.

     

    In particular, I felt that the third part articulating examples and case studies was most interesting to me because it provided real world examples of how to effectively implement the techniques and best practices identified in Part II.

     

    Once you start reading “Chaos to Clarity ", it will be hard to put down!

  • Coming soon - Chaos to Clarity

    Chaos to Clarity; The Tao of Risk Management will be hitting the streets in the Fall of 2014. Chaos to Clarity is a practical guide to risk management that brings clarity to the murky practice of risk management.  Tao is commonly thought of as a series of principles to live by which help frame and demystify risk management.

  • Disciplined Execution

    disciplined smallA disciplined process with emphasis on simplicity and flexibility yields a highly effective process that is dynamic and can quickly adapt to changing market conditions.  An effective risk management program includes both a strategic and a tactical component.  The strategic component of risk management begins with a set of risk management principles that includes management acknowledgement and support, recognition that risk management is an inexact science, and recognition that a disciplined approach yields significant value to the organization.  Another key principle is recognition that, even though risk management is an inexact science, the risk management process must be disciplined and systematic.  A disciplined and systematic risk management program facilitates continual improvement and creates true value for the organization.  A disciplined and systematic risk management approach also helps avoid overspending on risk management.  It doesn’t make sense to spend $100,000 to treat a risk with a $20,000 impact. A disciplined risk management approach will quickly identify cases where the cost to treat a risk exceeds the cost of the impact and can divert the remaining effort to higher priority risks.

  • ISACA Ireland 2016 Keynote

    The ISACA Ireland annual conference, Cultivating a Culture of Security was a smashing success this year. There were three tracks covering culture, technology and GRC topics. I was fortunate enough to deliver one of this year's keynote presentations. My keynote focused on the impact organizational culture has on an organization's ability to effectively manage risk and how to build a risk culture. I introduce a term that I coined which I call "risk hurricane". Risk hurricanes can be used to identify cultural traits that often lead to risk management disasters. Organizational culture can be very enduring yet brittle and fragile at the same time.  Warren Buffet said it best, "It takes 20 years to build a reputation and 5 minutes to ruin it.  It you think about that you will do things differently."  Checkout my keynote presentation to learn more about organizational culture and risk hurricanes. 

  • Jack Jones Writes Forward for Cultural Calamity

    A BIG THANKS to Jack Jones for writing the forward for my new book Cultural Calamity: Culture Driven Risk Management Disasters and How to Avoid Them.  

    One of the most important factors in successful risk management is organizational culture.  Unfortunately, few organizations take the risk management aspects of their culture seriously or even know how to address them when there are concerns.  There are a number of factors that drive this, including:
