    Hi all

    I decided for 4.1, to analize it by using a SWOT, but at addressing risk in 6.1, considering
    4. and 4.2 , I wonder if I should use also SWOT for each process?

    First, I was thinking for the addressing of processes only to invite to processes owners and
    do a brainstorming session, after that, to detect which risk to register.

    I think that doing a swot for processes, I can make the management of risk very complicated and confuse.

    Please share your thoughts.

    A SWOT is a good tool for strategic brainstorming and monitoring of high level issues, but it may not be adequate for all purposes. I suggest checklists for transactional processes, FMEA for complex processes and SWOTs for management processes. Even these three are not the extent of possible tools.

    We don't use SWOT in each process. We use SWOT analysis in strategic planning. SWOT is a good tool for establishing the organization's strategic directions to support the fulfillment of its vision. A sample is attached for your reference.

    Thanks Jenni
    I decided to use fishbone in general and for the context,swot .for fishbone,
    In the head of fish,the risk,in bones the causes which dont help me to avoid risk.
    Example in production
    In head, (1) risk of releasing bad product, possible causes,in machine (2)(instruments),in (3)people,poor training and so on.
    Once analized,I can evalute the risk value in general (1) or for every cause 2 and 3.
    It could be sufficient to consider it in general,but when consider 2 and 3, is possible to get more details.
    Once values are defined, I define treatment according to a risk matrix and a reference as to what action is needed to take according the values,and finally the monitoring.
    Please give some feedback regarding risk addressing.
    Of course I also have the list of risks for the follow-up and a like technical sheet of every analized risk.
