Summarized hint for applying risk-based thinking
First question comes in our mind, how to apply risk-based thinking in the quality management system. Simple, we need to identify, understand and then address risks for which following should be done:
- Determine, analyze and prioritize the risks and opportunities in the organization and its processes. Analyze and prioritize - (i) Acceptable risks and opportunities, and (ii) Unacceptable risks and opportunities. Engage everyone in the organization to share their views on the system and its processes.
- Plan actions to address risks and opportunities by finding the solutions to (i) how to avoid, eliminate or mitigate risks, and (ii) how to benefit from opportunities.
- Then implement the plan. Take actions as per planning. Check the effectiveness of the actions taken. Learn from experience.
Leaders of the organization should integrate risk-based thinking into the organization's work culture. Organization's people need to know organization's processes for which clearly define each process and encourage people to add value to the process. Many risks can be reduced by organization's people when they are asked to add value.
