    Hello Lisa

    Happened by chance on your web site today and there looks to be a lot of useful information. I am adding you to my favourites and hope to enjoy reading more in the future. I have one mild complaint however, I am viewing you through IE and the web background is coming up in a brownish colour which makes it difficult to read what is on the page. Any chance of reducing the colour?

    Enjoyed reading your blog. Fundamental understanding is key to develop a starting point. Perspective (with respect to risk practices) is essential to producing risk insight. The environmental or spherical perspective which should bring constraints to risk category and risk response. (i.e., a project’s risks may be operational risks closer to the corporation or company; aggregated risks most typically are company process/procedure derived). Realize robust Risk classification & catagorization form addresses this but most entities are not mature enough to develop (closer to ERM than program or project risk management). Communication of this concept is at times difficult when conducting risk workshops where the workshop attendees do not include business or operations. Recommendations from risk workshops almost always include process and control recommendations up the “4 P’s chain. Lack of a maturing and explicit risk practice within the Org challanges project level morale who are righteously constrained within the “triangle”: knowledge management & change management within the Org. Would welcome your thoughts.
