Risk management strategy

"The achievement of excellence can only occur if the organization promotes a culture of creative dissatisfaction." – Lawrence Miller

"When you innovate, you've got to be prepared for everyone telling you you're nuts." – Larry Ellison

"One should never impose one's views on a problem; one should rather study it, and in time a solution will reveal itself." – Albert Einstein

Other risks

"Mishaps are like knives, that either serve us or cut us, as we grasp them by the blade or the handle." – James Russell Lowell
