Diagram – Risk Management Process & Core Team Design Diagram

Both of these diagrams demonstrate that although there are many diverse groups working on different aspects of the project, they can still be synchronized in the grand scheme of the project.

In this specific model, a specific scenario is handed over to the risk assessment teams. There are three individual teams, which do their own work, within risk assessment. This allows each individual area of inquiry to be handled on its own. Two individual teams, “monitoring and review” and “communication and consultation” then deliberate and decide, based on the risk assessment’s research, how to handle the matter. This system allows individual work to be done, but also grants two groups the authority to oversee the project and ultimately make the decision.

This model is more complex than the previous one, but demonstrates the same idea. Although there is a hierarchy amongst the engineers (based on seniority), the leaders of the individual groups must all respond to the project leader. The project leader acts as the link between all the groups and ensures that all of the work is coordinated.
