Projects Past and Present:
Risk has been a huge component on previous projects as the lives of my team have depended on proper calculation of risk management. Understanding risk tolerance and appetite plays a important role in preparing a risk management plan. SWOT analysis, maintaining a risk register, performing quantitative and qualitative analysis, develop work-arounds, risk triggers, risk audits, and utilizing a probability and impact matrix are all methods I use to build risk management and control risk for the proper risk response.
