  • Balance prudence with profit

  • know when and how to mitigate a risk, and how much. Also stay within budget while doing the impossible.

  • Be a good generalist, and get very involved and earn the trust of all your fellow company workers from line to supervision to senior management.  Learn, get involved, listen, prepare, take action, teamwork and then redo it all again.

  • Have all stakehkolders pose their most burning questions on program plan directly to one another in person to person forum.

    See if other stakeholders can provide answers, or if more questions arise. 

    Get all the questions out in the open: identify the key questions.

    Use these questions to inform the obstacles/risks.

    Build a safe environment for open exchange about ways to minimize/eliinate risk.

  • have to be knowledgeable about a broad range of subjects.

  • Speaking about biases (and IMHO, Risk Managers are subject to them too...), I suggest you google "Cognitive biases potentially affecting judgment of global risks".  This will point you to an interesting article, itself containing numerous links to other references.
