Mr. Jordon’s text certainly demonstrates an in-depth knowledge of how risk should be handled as an approachable whole by a business entity, not just at the project or program level. We practitioners need to acknowledge that for too long we have walked in a direction by looking at our shoes. Andy shows us how to look where we are going and gives us a map as well.
The second section becomes yet more applicable when the traditional approach of identifying and analysing risks is explained within a process framework that applies to both large and smaller corporate structures. It's not difficult, while reading each page, to think of how both senior executives and Risk Management Consultants could put Jordan's approach to work.
Jordan's writing style that leaves the reader feeling nearly as if they were listening to him speak comes through loud-and-clear in the final section. Section three outlines how to put the theories and examples into practice. `Run the implementation like any other project' sends a clear message. Understand the organizational challenge, define success, build a plan including assigning ownership, measure progress and drive completion. The book even goes one step further and addresses what to do when the plan isn't working. Not many writers are bold enough to address what to do when their methodology isn't working!
This isn't a fundamental risk management book. It inspires reflective organization-level thinking and provides a flexible framework on how to make any sized company more ready for those events that result in reduced corporate success.
