Risk Management Standard AS/NZS ISO 31000:2009 and Importance of Establishing a Context

Date: Saturday 12th February, 2011

Speaker: Dr. Tayyab Maqsood

PMI Lahore Chapter is scheduling a seminar on the topic of "Risk Management Standard AS/NZS ISO 31000:2009 and Importance of Establishing a Context." AS/NZS 4360:2004 Risk Management standard is considered as one of the best standards in the area of Risk Management. It was adopted by ISO in 2009 and released as AS/NZS ISO 31000:2009. Dr. Tayyab will provide a brief overview of this standard and discuss the underlying philosophies and principles. The first proposed stage in the theory of Risk Management according to AS/NZS ISO 31000:2009 is "Establishing a Context". A poorly established context (or no context) will have detrimental effect on the quality and effectiveness of Risk Management Plan. Tayyab will discuss in detail the importance of 'establishing a context' under which whole Risk Management activity is to take place. He will highlight various ways through which a context can be established. He will argue that a properly established context will help avoid identifying and managing risks out of context and would keep the Risk Management Plan effective and relevant to the Project.
