Strategic Thought Limited presented its new application Active Risk ManagerÔ to the Association of Project Managers in London on Wednesday 14 October. One week later on Thursday 21 October they followed this with a presentation to the American Society for Engineering Management in Washington, USA. The presenter was Thomas Teixeira MSc, CEng, MIMechE, Product Manager at Strategic Thought Limited.

Active Risk Manager(ARM), launched earlier this year, is a risk management and MIS solution designed to identify and track the everyday risks associated with business and enterprise activities.

Recent studies have shown that risk management is not being effectively carried out across organisations. Although, in many cases project and business risk is identified very little is being done in terms of cost effective mitigation.

ARM has been developed by Strategic Thought Limited to provide an integrated approach to risk management in three key aspects of an organisation - its strategy, its processes and its people. The benefit to a company using ARM is that the application will help provide the right levels of secure information to the right levels of management at the right time.

Teixeira explains, 'It has been shown that enhanced communication ultimately improves the chances of completing projects within budget, time scales and to the agreed requirements. ARM communicates real time risk information to the people who need to make decisions wherever they are in an organisation or even in the world by using the latest Internet technology.

'We have also recognised the need to integrate the best planning and requirements tools into ARM to ensure we really deliver the solution, rather than just another standalone component.'

At both conferences delegates requested further details and individual demonstrations of ARM to be arranged.

Richard Higgs, managing director of Strategic Thought Limited concludes,
'ARM takes risk forward from the traditional standalone ‘science’ system, into an infrastructure that enables the enterprise to become not just risk aware, but risk managed.'
