Risk Mitigation Isn't All That Important...

Until It Is.
In today's high-pressure business environment, with fewer people doing more work, we tend to focus only on what's urgent. The time-tested priority matrix and the time-tested risk matrix, when blended together, yeild clear guidance on where we should spend our time.
Unfortunately, urgency tends to be the trump card, with people spending their time on things that are urgent, but not important, rather than the important but not urgent (or high probability/low impact rather than high impact/low probability). If you are not already doing so, focus on quadrants one and two in the matrix, rather than one and three.
At Industrial Packaging, we work with our customers to prepare for the unexpected. We identify risks that have high impact. Some of the ways that we mitigate risk include:
- Pre-approval of alternate materials,
- Pre-approval of alternate packaging options
- Preventative Maintenance Programs
- Spare Parts Inventories
- Flex Space
- Flex Labor
We keep our customers as risk-free as possible by keeping the Risk away from the Reward. Let us help you to keep those risks mitigated.
About David Roberge
I am grateful for my 9 years as part of the outstanding Industrial Packaging team. I was able to hang out with some of the most knowledgeable folks in the packaging industry. I feel even luckier that I was able to share that knowledge with you. I love learning, hiking, and growing people and teams both personally and professionally, and helping companies grow better.
