preparedness and synchronization work that the Argonne National

the course of assisting clients, we have successfully proven our
philosophy that effective risk planning is a cost-effective process
that can adapt to changes, remain consistent with an organization’s
strategy, and deliver benefits such as manageability, assurance, and
time and cost efficiencies. Our approach to risk planning
achieves this goal by supporting the effectiveness of developing
resiliency from both an operational and technical support role.
AHM process consists of a series of meetings, interviews, surveys,
questionnaires, and other analytic and consensus-building tools to
develop operational goals and objectives for short-term and
long-terms plans. As goals and objectives are identified and
eventually compete for priority in the strategic plan, AHM will use
collaboration and proven interactive decision support software to
establish priorities in developing the program requirements.
The AHM approach:
• uses a logical, proven, knowledge based process of needs assessment
• provides realistic, quantifiable risk assessment
• results in improved investment value of enhancement expenditures
• uses proactive planning to get the right solution the first time
• saves time, money and resources
