Risk Assessment and Mitigation
Alternative Solution Risks and Probability Consequence and Severity Mitigation Techniques
In this table, list the two or three remaining alternatives in column 1. List the potential risks of each alternative in column 2 followed by the probability of occurrence as rated by high, medium, or low. In column 3, evaluate each alternative for the consequences if the risk occurs, and if the risk were to occur, the expected severity to your organization, Finally, in column 4 identify any risk mitigation technique that can be used to alleviate or neutralize the possible consequences of the risk.
Optimal Solution Implementation Plan
Deliverable Timeline Who is Responsible
In Table 6, you will consider the steps companies go through to implement a solution.
• In column 1 (Deliverable), identify major deliverables.
• In column 2 (Timeline), develop a timeline.
• In column 3 (Who is Responsible), determine who is responsible for each major deliverable.
Evaluation of Results
End State Vision End State Goal Metric Target
Think about the specific goals that will let you know that you have achieved the end-state vision. These are your end-state goals. From these goals, you will create both metrics (measurements) and targets (specific levels to be achieved).
If an End-State Vision is ?The organization will become an engaged workplace
Your End-State Goal is ?Provide employee engagement training for all stakeholders
Your Metric is ?Score in the 80th percentile in annual engagement survey results
Your Target is ?Two surveys per year (physicians and all other employees) beginning 9/1
Identify a minimum of three end-state goals, metrics, and targets to support the end state vision. Be sure to make your goals SMART: Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, and Timely.
