Managing for Humpty Dumpty Risk
So this was interesting…
I was in a meeting and someone was discussing the risks involved in a project.
And they mentioned the Humpty Dumpty Effect.
A bunch of people looked at them like what’s that.
Then they explained that it’s the risk of breaking something during the project.
Sort of like the Hippocratic Oath that doctors take to, “first, do no harm.”
When we are planning, designing, building or implementing a project — be it information technology or something else — we don’t want to break something in the process.
That’s the Humpty Dumpty Risk to beware of and it’s an egg-celent point! ;-)
