The Case for Proactive Risk/Crisis Evaluation

During the last 20 years, experts monitored the crisis readiness of the Fortune 500 companies and classified them in two groups:

  • proactive companies that evaluated and prepared for crises;
  • reactive companies that dealt with crises as they occurred.

The results of that long term monitoring effort were simple. The proactive companies:

  • live longer
  • face less crises
  • do better in financial terms
  • have a better corporate reputation

Crisis prepared companies:

  • suffer fewer crises
  • recover faster
  • are more profitable

The frightening reality highlighted by this research was that less than 25 percent of the Fortune 500 companies were proactive!

There are no immune industries... mining is as susceptible to risk and crises as any other industry. This course will show you how to be proactive, and give you the background and tools to evaluate risk and to plan and prepare for crises. In short, it will show you how to engineer for success in mining.

Through this course, I learned how to scientifically reduce risks and reduce risk losses, so as to judge whether a project is feasible in a more scientific and systematic way. I believe that this course can help me avoid many risks in my future decisions.
