Manage causes and consequences of your risks

written by Natalia Molina, On April 03, 2023

We know that in risk management, it is important to identify the causes and consequences as they help us to have a deeper understanding of the risks that exist and allow us to take preventive measures and mitigate the impact of risks on the organization.
Causes: These are the factors or events that can cause a risk, i.e., what can trigger a situation of danger or uncertainty. Causes can be internal or external to the organization, for example some internal causes are lack of personnel training, poor planning and lack of machinery maintenance, while external causes can be changes in the market, natural disasters and political changes, among others.
Consequences: These are the effects that can be derived from a risk that materializes. Consequences can be positive or negative, depending on the type of risk and the impact it has on the organization. Negative consequences may include financial losses, reputational damage and legal sanctions, etc. Positive consequences may include growth opportunities, improvements in operational efficiency, development of new skills, etc.
