Although you may not be professionally enagaged in risk management activities, you and everyone else in the world is in fact a risk management practitioner. If you buckle your seat, make a restaurant reservation or have life insurance, you’re managing risk. I wrote this limerick many years ago to offer an everyday, albeit quirky, example of risk management behavior.
What is Risk Mitigation?
A risk manager with a very sick pet
Found a way to hedge his risk bet.
He so loved his hound
That he searched ‘til he found
A combination taxidermist and vet.

I retired at the end of 2011, after a 39 year career in the Aerospace industry as a Propulsion Engineer, Engineering Manager and Program Manager. My professional interests and expertise are in the areas of Program, Risk and Knowledge Management. I'm passionate about life-long learning in a wide variety of topics and I'm committed to sharing my knowledge and ideas with those who are interested. I'm an Aerospace Industry Consultant. I serve my community as a Rotarian. My hobby is playing as a jazz keyboard.
