Risk Management for Organizations: Keeping the Ship Afloat The concept of risk management is one that has to encompass the whole of your program, from the first day of planning a new activity through the last piece of gear that is put away when the trip is over. Managing Risk throughout an organization requires that all levels of program and administrative staff understand the importance and the interconnectedness of their efforts. It is such a huge task and involves so many different players in your organization that it's often hard to make sure that all the jobs get done and done well. Preston Cline of Adventured Management and Rick Curtis of Princeton University and OutdoorEd.com team up to give you a framework to operate from that will help you and your staff both vision and envision how risk management should permeate your organization. "Keeping the Ship Afloat" presents a metaphor for organizational risk management that encompasses five stages of program development and implementation: assessment, planning and developing the program, selecting & training staff, running the program and finally reviewing and evaluating the program.
