Part IV: Summary Review

Part IV: Summary Review

This summary highlights the complete risk-taking process.

Exploration

Step 1. Clarify Objectives and Values

  • What desired outcomes are likely to be advanced and values embraced through reasonable risk taking?

  • What are you willing to consider placing at risk?

Planning and Preparation

Step 4. Choose a Change Strategy

  • Consider two basic strategies: incremental (branch) and transformational (root) change.

  • Which strategy best fits the situation?

Implementation, Follow-Up, and Learning

Step 7. Overcome Barriers to Appropriate Risk-Taking

  • Clarify stakeholder values to assure good alignment with each other to support effective teamwork.

  • Reduce excessive pressure by reframing your perceptions, letting go of resentment, and gaining social support.

  • Encourage dissident views to avoid “groupthink” distortions, by consulting “outside” people, asking for critical feedback, and offering training in interpersonal communication skills, such as managing disagreement constructively.
