Risk management: Why neglecting it is one of the riskiest thing you can do

Most people would agree that planning for all eventualities when embarking on a new business venture or major contract award decision is important.

After years of struggling to tear an opening into the stubborn, thick material, spilling the liquid, swearing loudly, all before hacking at the corners with scissors or a knife, some bright spark had the idea to just put a tab on the top. And there it was. A way of doing something that was so frustrating for so long, was suddenly effortless.
