Overcoming the Gilligan Factor: Enhancing Mission Effectiveness Through Risk Management

Operational risk management (ORM) is defined as the weighing of risks and benefits associated with the activities engaged in and is a key tool used in modern maritime decisionmaking. This article gives an overview of ORM and outlines the 7 steps ORM is based upon (identify mission tasks, identify hazards, assess risks, identify options, evaluate risk vs. gain, execute decision, and monitor situation). ORM allows for application of an objective tool to help a team communicate, focus resources where they will be most effective, and accomplish more tasks, safely.
