Pushing the limits – Managing risk in a faster taller, bigger world
Our world is moving into unprecedented technological dimensions, with new records being set almost every day. High-speed trains are getting ever faster, buildings ever taller and bridges ever longer. Complexity and interconnectivity are increasingly becoming part of our day-to-day lives. This publication spotlights potential implications and sets out proposals for mitigation. It highlights how important it is for risk management to get involved in complex projects early on as many failures take root causes in the planning or inception phase. By getting involved early, risk managers can help to prevent losses from occurring in the first place. This makes economic sense for investors, project owners and society at large. The publication is meant as an invitation to start collaborating on risk management for the 21st century with all stakeholders – to make tomorrow’s world at least as safe as today’s.
