Meeting Description

Carl Pritchard is baaack! And no surprise, he's talking risk. Carl expands on his earlier discussion on the first five traits of risk management excellence (Clarity, Consistency, Communication, Creativity and Community) and dives headlong into the second five traits. He'll examine the need to be:

  • Concrete – Being a stone wall when it comes to tolerances
  • Calculating – Leveraging the mathematics only when it makes sense
  • Considerate – Considering the cross-project, cross-community and cross-organizational implications
  • Clairvoyant – Playing the game five steps ahead
  • Chronicle – Becoming the resident historian

As always, Carl will bring along a host of stories, weaving in everything from the Italian cruise ship tragedy to the Titanic as he examines practical ways that you can ensure you're making the best investments of your time in risk management.
