Science Risk Management - Workshop

In everyday life, work, and science projects, people generally don’t like to talk about risk. There is a perception that talking about risk will stop something from happening, make bad things happen, or sound negative at a time when positivity is needed. Often with projects, scientists may consider it to be easier to deal with issues as they occur, instead of spending time planning beforehand to avoid or mitigate the risk those issues would occur in the first place. Spending the time identifying, mitigating and managing risk at the beginning of a project will stop things from going wrong and save you a lot of time, money and angst.
