What is the single most important concept in your experience that facilitates risk management planning? I was asked to address this question in a webinar for the Project Management World Meetup in Silicon Valley. My purpose as an Executive Consultant, and as a seminar leader for the Project Management Institute and online university instructor, is to help managers create environments for more successful projects. In this post I propose that the risk management process is more effective when it seeks to identify and act on cause elements or drivers rather than outcomes or effects.
