There are two ways to resolve issues ↕️

Over the years I’ve learned that unresolved issues cost lots of money and when left unresolved, the cost just keeps going up and up…📈

 There are two ways to resolve issues: 

1️⃣ The ‘way we’ve always done it’ as per the ‘norm’:

  • an Issue/problem arises
  • we choose to not recognise it, acknowledge it and/or deal with it
  • we choose to ignore it, reject it maybe even park it to the side and leave it there till later…$$$$
  • we get on with the day to day tasks, the doing, implementing and focusing on getting things completed
  • forget and conveniently ignore the unresolved problem
  • hand the problem to someone else
  • the problem keeps growing and so does the cost

As a result🚫Nothing gets resolved $$$$


2️⃣A risk management plan. The best weapon for anaylsing and resolving risks efficiently and effectively:

  • What are our activities
  • who’s involved
  • who are our stakeholders
  • what can go wrong
  • what has gone wrong in the past
  • what would cause it to happen
  • what would be the consequences should that risk occur

Use the Risk Management Excel Spreadsheet Plan I have attached for you here. This will help: 

  • identify and understand potential risks 
  • detail the strategies for dealing with risks
  • find ways to minimise their impact
  • allocate time and resources to prepare alternative strategies and/or contingencies to manage/mitigate risks

Access the Risk Management Excel Spreadsheet Plan HERE

Print it out. Put in shared areas. Contextualise it. Make it work for you. For your business. 

I trust this has been useful and that it brings some value and insights and maybe leads to some action and change around this topic for you.
