independent advice on tools and methods
|Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
The higher the level of risk you are prepared to take, the higher the rewards
that may be achieved. If you invest in the stock market, you will know
that it is usually the riskiest ventures that promise the highest returns.
And the same is often true in technology projects: the greatest potential
benefits may come from using the newest, and therefore most uncertain,
tools and methods.
Thus risk management is not
about avoiding risks altogether. It is about facing risks deliberately
and systematically, avoiding taking unnecessary risks, and carefully managing
the risks that you have decided to take.
