Different perspectives = effective identification of risk
One of the most important ways to achieve effective risk analysis is to ensure that you have a diversity of participants. It is extremely important that the different perspectives are represented in the analysis group. For example, the pessimistic, optimistic, analytical, experienced managers, newly qualified, men and women.
This ensures that as many risk elements as possible are identified and the best mitigation plans are set up. In addition, ownership is ensured across the project and organisation.
A methapor is: The use of a broad spectrum analysis group is like using a broad spectrum pennecillin to cure a severe disease.

Effective Score Cards
To carry out an effective risk workshop, it is a great advantage if you systematise your input. HKS-Consult has developed a series of scorecards for this purpose, which is easy to use. Go to download section to get these for free.
During the workshop, the participants fill out the scorecards with descriptions, scores, mitigation, risk owner, risk actions, their initials, etc., so that afterwards questions can be put to the participant who filled out the card.
This supports an effective, systematic summary along the way and makes it much easier to collect input into a risk spreadsheet afterwards. In addition, it shows to everyone that the analysis is carried out in an efficient and professional way.
