)-- The conference is held annually to engage and educate process improvement professionals in the latest concepts, innovative best practices, industry tools and services that are certain to provide the strongest solutions available in process and performance management.
Baxter’s presentation, entitled Be A Know It All: Avoid Risk Blind Spots With Measurement, will focus on four major risk management blind spots and how to reap benefits by turning them into know-it-all opportunities.
All projects are subject to risk; it is inescapable. Risk management techniques strive to minimize the probability and control the impact of unfortunate events by identifying, assessing, mitigating and monitoring risk. To properly support risk management, a measurement process should be deployed to ensure the performance of risk planning, periodic monitoring and mitigation. Specifically, measurement can not only provide project progress updates, it can also establish a risk cost baseline, drive mitigation behavior and provide a historical basis for risk planning and analysis. Measurement establishes a transparent and uniform process to monitor and manage risk.
