Risk Management Is A Huge Concept That The U S Army

STUDENT 1: Mike,
Risk management is a huge concept that the U.S army also utilizes extensively. In the case of the Manchester United Soccer Tournament project team, we have already identified the risks. Next, we would move to step two and assess the risk using a numerical number and risk assessment form. We would individualize each risk into an event and find the likelihood, impact and detection in which the risk will occur. Third, we would then develop mitigation measures to prevent the risk from occurring. Finally, we would develop contingency measure in case the risk occurs. Mitigating the risk is way more effective to help reduce risk than a contingency plan.

We then will mitigate risk (avoid/accept) for each event and develop a contingency plan for each.
1. Referees failing to show up at designated games: Avoid, we will want to mitigate this risk since there is a high impact on the game. Without the referees the game cannot be conducted. Mitigation of the risk would be to contact each referee to double check to ensure they will be available for the game. The contingency plan would be to have additional referees on stand-by to stand in if needed.
2. Fighting between teams: Accept, it is unknown if the players will get into fights onto the field.
3. Pivotal error committed by a referee that determines the outcome of a game: Avoid, ensure that the referees are certified and re-certified when warranted. Contingency plan, have the required documentation, rules and a camera ready to investigate referees call.
4. Abusive behavior along the sidelines by parents: Accept, unlikely this will occur and the impact that it will have on the match will not greatly impact the game. Contingency, would have the parents thrown out of the game when behavior is unsuitable.
5. Inadequate parking: Avoid, participants in the game along with spectators need places to park. Mitigation call participants to schedule car pool. Contingency, develop a shuttle service.
6. Not enough teams sign up for different age brackets: Avoid, without teams and players no match can be played. Mitigation, provide advertisement for the league and ensure the widest dissemination. Contingency, players age bracket levels will be expanded,
7. Serious Injury: Avoid, serious injury could have legal consequences that might have an impact on the organization. Mitigation, ensure players know the rules and do’s and don’ts of the sport. Remind them that safety is the number one priority. Contingency, have a certified medical attendant for each game to treat and evaluate possible injuries.
STUDENT 2: Scott
Manchester United Soccer Tournamanet project team has identified a number of risks to their project. Having completed the first two steps of risk management Identify and assess they need to complete the third step of risk response development. The first risk of Referees failing to show up at designated games can be mitigated by creating a contingency plan of having extra referees on call or actually standing by in case one doesn’t show up. Fighting between teams seems like a retained risk that cant really be avoided, or the impact could also be mitigated by hiring security gaurds. Pivotal error committed by a referree that determines the outcome of a game could be mitigated by a better vetting program of potential referees which may involve an increase in cost, it could also just be a retained risk. Abusive behavior along the sidelines by parents could be mitigated by hiring security gaurds, hiring securtiy gaurds could then solve two risk problems. Inadequate parking should have a contingency plan involving securing extra parking from a private business or on the side of the road, possibly coordinating with the city and police to shut down an adjacent street for parking on game days. Not enough teams sign up for different age brackets, could be mitigated by having a way to manipulate the brackets so teams could play a different age brack for example one up or one down. Serious injury is a risk that could be transferred by liability insurance and requiring parents to sign a waiver relieving the organization of liability.
