Critical success factors for an effective risk assessment

Registrations have now closed.

Join us for a Wellington Morning Roundtable Network Session.

The session will be run by Dr Chris Peace on Critical success factors for an effective risk assessment.

As part of his PhD, Chris examined the effectiveness of risk assessments in an organisational setting and found that risk assessors may not effectively assess risks and so may not provide the best available information or effective advice to decision makers.

Potential critical success factors and necessary conditions for an effective risk assessment were identified from the literature review and linked to form a tentative goal tree.

The research identified a need for training in risk assessments in New Zealand. Mechanisms for improving risk assessments were identified, with one (a ‘risk canvas’) being developed for and tested during a series of training workshops and found to improve performance and confidence (but not consistency or reproducibility of risk assessment results).
