Specialty is identifying and planning the mitigation of operational risk management. Insurance and contract clauses like limitation of liability, disclaimers of damages, warranty limitations, indemnification are after the fact protections against problems that have already happened. I look at the business or project and try to identify what the performance risks are and what the business can do to eliminate, mitigate or accept them and the consequences that may arise if they come to fruition. I worked with senior management, senior project team management, support personal and line personnel to develop and administer risk mitigation plans and the formulation of plans to minimize the impact of unanticipated problems.
