Assessment 5: corrective action and monitoring

Complete Section 4 – Corrective Action and Monitoring of the risk management plan by evaluating the organizational and departmental tolerance for risk, identifying risk mitigation approaches, describing a strategy for corrective risk management, and assessing a corrective plan for your chosen case study or work project.

Consider why an organization would use corrective action and how the risk management process is monitored. Monitoring risks and preparing corrective action reports are beneficial in the risk management process.

Strategic planning approaches, including the SWOT (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats) approach, are used in evaluating a business and examining its strengths (opportunities) and weakness (threats). The SWOT approach can be a beneficial tool for corrective action and risk monitoring processes.

The information collected can identify areas of risk opportunities or threats so that corrective action and monitoring can be planned into the risk management process.
