  1. So many of these lists around and everyone does the same study and get different results! No wonder we are not getting anywhere with Risk Management.

    Every organisation must have their own list of top risks… and DO something about it, lists means nothing, ACTION is everything. Those who are doing nothing will just be exploited ( and executed) by those who are better.
