I was just reading one of my blog posts about ERM at Hydro One where I wrote that there were very few great case studies about ERM. Until today.
I think this case study about ERM during the organizing of the Vancouver Winter Olympics in the RIMS Risk Management magazine is a close second to the Hydro One case study and a must read. This tale reminds us that we must always to come back to the objectives. This is basic stuff but when you keep reminding yourself of the objectives and the risks that prevent you from acheiving the objectives, it really allows you to focus and develop succinct risk definitions and action plans as opposed to a list of 1000 risks.
