    To me….risk management means creating a culture of safety in an organization. So everyone strives to mitigate risks.

    No business can be successful or grow without taking some form of risk.

    Risk Management is taking a proactive and strategical approach that allows your business to take calculated risks. This will maximize the benefits and downsize the pitfalls.

    Risk management to me is a integral part of operating a successful business. When an organization is successfully managing risk the employees see a concern for their safety, the clients see that their privacy is protected, and the financial department see savings. Risk management can not be boiled down to one thing, it is an overall organizational approach necessary for any organization to survive.

  4. Maria McKay  on May 4th, 2011

    Risk management means being proactive in trying to prevent some sort of downside. ( injury, lost profits, environmental damage etc)

  5. Jennifer Crosbie  on May 4th, 2011

    If you are still in business you are mitigating risk to some extend. Risk management is the ability to minimize the likelihood that something bad will happen and the ability of a business to be prepared for the worst.

    “The first step in the risk management process is to acknowledge the reality of risk. Denial is a common tactic that substitutes deliberate ignorance for thoughtful planning.”
    Charles Tremper quotes

    tools to help you monitor and minimize risks with regards to the safety and well being of patients.

  9. Ryan Legge  on May 4th, 2011

    when someone says risk management i think of a systematic approach to identifying insurable and noninsurable risks, evaluating the risk of loss versus the cost of insurance, and minimizing the possibility of loss through well-planned and regularly followed systems and procedures. I believe that clearRisk will do that and more.

  10. bonnie_blue2  on May 4th, 2011

    Realizing the risks that abound, acting to prevent those you can, and getting cover to take care of the rest.

  11. James  on May 5th, 2011

    Being able to think ahead and quickly adapt to changing conditions from a position of strength and security.

  12. seniorfrito  on May 5th, 2011

    What does risk management mean to me? Well I look at it from a non-business perspective which can be used in every aspect of my life. And basically risk management is my ability to assess impending choices, understand every outcome of each of my choices, and effectively make the right decision. And hopefully that decision will not only be minimally risky, but also be the most beneficial.

  13. LisaJ  on May 5th, 2011

    Risk Management is identifying risks and then coordinating efforts to minimize or eliminate them.

  14. gloriagao  on May 5th, 2011

    A process to manage risk by transfering the risk through contracts and insurance, minimizing risk by studying the risk and finding ways to control the risk, as well as finizing the risk through captive and self-insurance.

  15. Serena Debolt  on May 9th, 2011

    Risk Management to me means doing your due dilligence to investigate everything about your investments – there are so many scammers and theives out there trying to grab your investment money.

  16. smogensen  on May 9th, 2011

    I prefer to think of ‘Risk Governance,’ where the board sets out clear criteria — directed to the CEO — that specify what is to be achieved (for whom, at what worth), and what conditions, circumstances or practices are to be avoided (i.e., Executive Limitations). Operating within the Policy Governance system, organizations have a far better shot of efficiently avoiding both the risk of not achieving what they should, as well as the risk of using practices that are illegal, unethical or imprudent.

  17. Craig Rowe  on May 9th, 2011

    Thank you everyone. We have some great responses so far, and I’m anxious to hear what others think of risk management over the course of this contest!

    To me, Risk Management ulitmately means adding to shareholder value by recognizing and mitigating company risks to acceptable levels.

  20. anniemac21  on May 11th, 2011

    Risk Management is anticipating, identifying, and minimizing what you can and being as best prepared as possible for everything else.

  21. Delrahim69  on May 12th, 2011

    Risk management to me means limiting poor outcomes on your way to big payoffs!

  22. hanskirsch  on May 12th, 2011

    Successful risk management is about finding the balance in the triangle risk awareness, risk protection and cost efficiency.

  23. Joyce McDaniel  on May 12th, 2011

    Risk Management is learning, listening and reading and being ready to make that decision whether it be in stocks, insurance and etc.

  24. RiskReducer  on May 12th, 2011

    Risk Management is the process of freeing my clients to focus on their own core competencies, rather than the uncertainties.

  25. Ashley Marron  on May 13th, 2011

    If Risk management could be spun into getting business to consider managing risk as an opportunity to grow and move businesses forward I believe we could get wider adoption of the principles and benefits associated with Risk management. Risk in its current perception is far too negative a term for most businesses to embrace.

  26. Fran Menton  on May 13th, 2011

    Risk is the chance of a possible hazard which can occur from a chosen action, activity or even inactivity. Risk management is the practice of identifying and analyzing these risks so they can be minimized.

  27. Alex DC  on May 15th, 2011

    To me, risk management means taking appropriate measures to ensure a successful future.

  28. lynn ward  on May 18th, 2011

    risk management is when you assess any areas which may create a hazard/risk and put in place any preventative measures to reduce and identify the risk

  32. knrf  on May 26th, 2011

    Risk management is – (1) being a responsible corporate citizen, (2) understanding the distribution of outcomes, and (3) having the discussion.

  33. Craig Rowe  on May 27th, 2011

  34. Maria Aguilar  on May 27th, 2011

    to me Risk Management is to take care of my child, prevent any injuries and illnesses and as a citizen – being responsible in everyday life.

  35. starkeee  on May 27th, 2011

    Figuring out what risks are worth taking, gauging them based on their rate of return and safety.

  36. knrf  on May 27th, 2011

    risk management is about not being the proverbial frog in warm that gets progressively hotter and hotter

  37. Lisa G  on May 27th, 2011

    Risk management means to me just that you need to take risks in business and sometimes in life, The risk you take might not always work out. But sometimes it is worth it in everyday life and in business.

  38. Tai Yen Gee  on May 27th, 2011

    To me, risk management means the control of risk so that it is minimum and the profit gain is maximum. This is because every act of the company will of course have risk. Therefore we need risk management to efficiently reduce the percentage or effect or risk.

  39. saraminda  on May 27th, 2011

    Risk is the effect (positive or negative) of an event or series of events that take place in one or several locations

    It means knowing (or at least having a good idea of) when to hold ‘em and knowing when to fold ‘em.

  42. Kristine Allcroft  on May 28th, 2011

    Risk management is a several step process by which businesses and individuals assess possible future loss on several dimensions (e.g.,property loss, financial loss, information/technology loss) and create plans to mitigate damages in the event of loss. These plans include step by step information and contacts and are updated on a regular basis.

  43. jerry  on May 30th, 2011

    In doing business you should be a risk taker! managing the business is managing the risks. be able to control damage, plan stragetically to avoid or lessen it in short term or longer term that way business as usual always!

  47. Linds3636  on May 31st, 2011

    To me Risk management is a discipline for identifying risks, and how serious those risks are. Also it is an approach that seeks to eliminate or at least minimize the level of risk associated with a business operation. Its a very important thing when it comes to mangement!

  48. jayjacobs  on May 31st, 2011

    To me, Risk Management is one of the enablers of effective decisions by providing information about a complex concept (risk). So I guess Risk Management is an element within every decision. Whether formalized, mature or seat-of-the-pants, it’s part of the decision process.

  49. jgs00029  on June 1st, 2011

    risk management means to me that it is identification,analysis,avoidance,minimization,control,assesment and priorization of risks
