Mike Quinn: Risk Management

Mike Quinn is a risk management executive and consultant in California. He works with 2MQ Risk Management Consulting, and is the Consulting Director of Risk Management there.

Risk management is a profession that sounds self-explanatory, and when painted in broad strokes, it is. It is the process of identifying and assessing potential threats to an organization and its capital, and earnings potential. Threats may be posed by any number of things, such as legal liabilities, natural disasters, strategic management errors, and financial uncertainty – to name just a few. Risk is, in short, just about anything that could pose a threat to an organization to achieve its mission, and risk management is the process of thinking about them systematically, before they occur.

Organizations must think about risk management for many reasons. One of them is safety: it’s important for those in an organization’s group to feel secure. A group that feels safe and secure is more likely to be efficient and productive than one that does not.

It’s also important for mitigating the threat of possible litigation. We live in a litigious world, and a large payout to people who bring lawsuits can severely impact an organization. By setting up a risk management strategy, an organization minimizes the chances of people taking legal action that can financially damage an organization.

Mike Quinn is a member of the Risk Management Society, and is OSHA-Certified. He also holds a law degree from the JFK School of Law in Pleasant Hill, California.
