Is ISO 31000 a good choice for risk management?

When I began to write my book on risk management for workplace and process risks, I realised how easy it was to over complicate the subject. I needed to rethink my approach to the extent where I “simplified” risk management.

Making an important subject like risk management unintelligible is neither helpful nor effective in getting the desired end results (i.e., to effectively manage risks).

Having researched various options, I opted to use the ISO 31000 (2018) “Risk Management – Guidelines” framework as the baseline for my book (link below).

However, to achieve simplification, I had to dig into my experiences and dovetail around the ISO 31000 guidelines.

In this video, I want to briefly share with you some background on ISO 31000 and my thoughts behind simplifying risk management.
