The theme for this year’s Society for Risk Analysis (SRA) annual meeting is ‘Advancing Analysis’. David Hancock (Tame, Messy and Wicked Risk Leadership) used the term ‘talking therapy’ to describe one of the processes at the heart of risk managing messy problems, which suggests there is a correlation between healthy people and healthy organizations. In any event, I find it encouraging to see the range of over 800 professional practitioners, academics and policy makers that the SRA meeting is bringing together in San Francisco (December 10–12). The program looks wonderful, with sessions on the risks associated with terrorism, pandemics, climate change, food, chemicals … all of which suggest that the world of risk management is indeed in good health. I am delighted that Gower is sponsoring the SRA’s annual career fair at the meeting, where we also have our latest titles of interest on display.
Last month, Gower Author Penny Pullen spoke at the Gantthead virtual conference, PMXPO. For those of you who would like the opportunity to see this – it is an audio-visual presentation (around half an hour) followed by questions and answers. The topic is around making projects work through facilitating risk management. You can register here for the replay.
Penny Pullan is co-author of A Short Guide To Facilitating Risk Management published by Gower.
A few days ago we guided you to a free webinar by Internationally acclaimed risk expert and Gower author David Hillson. On his website you have the opportunity to experience other free full-length training sessions that combine presentation slides with audio. Managing Risk in Projects is one of his latest, each lasts about an hour, and tackles a specific risk topic in detail. We think the webinars offer a great way to learn about a particular subject at your own pace and in your own time. Full details of David’s events, briefings and books can be found at his website .
David Hillson shows how two simple extensions to the standard risk process can bridge the gap between tactics and strategy, ensuring that risk management delivers benefits to the wider organisation. This free Webinar was recorded for the PMI International Development Community of Practice (PMI ID CoP) in March 2012.

David has published an array of books with Gower Publishing, focussing on risk, a full of list of titles can be found here www.gowerpublishing.com/risk-attitude.
I sometimes find it hard not to allow personal prejudice to bias my response to management ideas which is why I’ll limit myself to a simple ‘very interesting’, rather than anything more effusive, in response to Matthew Leitch’s detailed piece ‘Risk Management and Beyond Budgeting’. If you’re beginning to question the traditional control associated with annual budgeting then do read this piece! Matthew Leitch is author of Intelligent Internal Control and Risk Management.
