in all sectors of industry have learned it is complicated to manage
risks. In addition to this, reducing risks often conflicts with other
goals set by the organization. Taking the right decision requires a good
overview of the risks. The assessement of higher frequency - smaller
impact risks is relatively easy. It is much more difficult to assess and
manage high impact - low frequency risk scenarios.
Managing risks is not the task of any single department in an
organization. Most departments and employees, at all levels in the
organization, play a role in risk management. Communicating to every
department and employee what is expected of them and why that is
expected, is a key factor in managing risks.
The Bowtie method has proven to be the best and most integral approach in managing risks, especially the major risks. A Bowtie diagram gives you an overview of multiple plausible scenarios, in a single picture. Besides being easy to understand, Bowties also provide an overview and insight that is not obtained by any other method of risk analysis & assessment.
