CASE Tool 3-1: A Risk Management Program Planning Structure

Risk in our business can come from many sources. The firm that is able to identify risks before they occur and take the necessary steps to mitigate them is well on its way to being successful. This tool is designed to help firm principals or managers focus their thinking on what may occur and what can be done to prevent it from being a disaster.

It is a template that uses the Ten Foundations for Risk Managementas one axis and four aspects of your business; staff, clients, owners/users, and projects across the other axis. Use the intersections of each of these elements of your business to help you understand the risk that can be categorized there and the policies and procedures that you can implement in your firm to mitigate that risk.

This tool has been updated for 2023.
