RISMAN method

The RISMAN method is a trusted methodology in the infrastructure industry, but it is used more and more in other industries as well. RISMAN is a method for risk management. This method is originally designed for big infrastructural projects. However, RISMAN is also applicable for organizations and processes. Starting with a risk analysis the risks are identified. With that information the project manager then can take mitigation measures. The effect of the measures will be evaluated periodically and new risks will be analyzed. This way the project manager gets a clear overview of the most important risks.

The RISMAN method contains 4 steps: determine project goal(s), identify risks, determine the critical risks and the last step is to identify mitigation measures. The method provides some techniques during the execution of a risk assessment, e.g. a risk matrix and the RISMAN-perspectives. With the RISMAN-perspectives the project is being viewed from different angles in order to create an integral risk image of the project. RISMAN defines 7 perspectives to view a project:

– Organizational
– Financial/economical
– Managerial/political
– Technical
– Legal
– Geographical/spatial
– Social

Our RISKID tools fully support the RISMAN method. The risk matrix and RISMAN perspectives can be setup easily by the user. Every step in the risk management process that is described above is included in RISKID. Next to this we add an extra dimension in the risk management process: the human factor. Within RISKID every step in the process the human measure has been taken into account. Our simple design ensures that our users experience the highest user-friendliness. In the end, RISKID is a tool designed to support the human interaction.

Many engineering firms are already using RISKID for their infrastructure projects. Take a look atĀ our clients and theirĀ testimonials here.
