Thanks Helmut
Normally I apply most of the times a closeout.
Because I also use a fishbone to determine causes of risk, determine action plans and do the follow up.
After ensuring is effective, I close it.

Thanks Jen
To keep risks opened as you suggest, it will be a hard job to keep risk a monitored.
I think we need to find an easier way for the management.
To keep risks under control, it needs time and efforts.
I remember you suggested a worksheet to register risk, I found it interesting, but some doubts came up, in criteria you used to classify risk values, and actions according to the values obtained, could you clarify it?
Thanks

This subject of "risk management" and "risk based thinking" is starting to get funny, here and in the real world, because it's not a new concept. Sound business management and decision making has always been about "risk" or "what if".

Who really believes that Steve Jobs used some kind of chart or mathematical formula to go the direction he did with his home garage based business? What about Bill Gates in his decision to capture the operating system world and not focus on hardware? Mary Kay Ash didn't employ some statistical analysis guru in her decision to make skin care products in her home bath and use pink as her trade color. I'm pretty sure Fred Smith didn't sit around studying charts, equations, market trends or anything else when he packed an overnight bag, took the last cash he had and went to Vegas to raise operating capital.

Every one of those "business leaders" made a gut decision as their "risk based thinking" process and did rather well, so here's an argument, can a "GBD" or "SWAG" be a valid "RBT" methodology?

The criteria I suggested may or may not be appropriate for you. Feel free to put in your own criteria.

The register may be good for processes, but Randy is right: you may have things you don't need to use a methodology for at all. This includes the simple question of "Should we enter xyz market now, or should we wait?" Both have risks of getting it wrong, either through poor timing or missed opportunity.

Please do not overthink this.
