Risk Hurricane

On average, a company will lose 25% of its revenue from an organizational disaster – and that’s the good news.


Hi I am Joe Mayo, creator of the risk hurricane and author of two risk management books (Chaos to Clarity and Cultural Calamity).


Normalized deviance, rejection, deception, and risk normalization are cultural patterns that can lead to a risk hurricane.  Hurricanes occur in nature every year.  They are predicable, make a mess of everything, and no good comes from a hurricane that makes landfall.  Risk hurricanes, like hurricanes in nature, are predictable, extremely costly if ignored, and avoidable with planning and preparation.  Visit my website, twitter, or LinkedIn to read about a variety of risk management topics.  Get a copy of Cultural Calamity to learn about organizational culture challenges and risk hurricanes.
