AMC Announces Release of Its First Metrics Report
June 26, 2006
AMC today announced release of its first report in the Adaptive Metrics Series. Joseph M. Firestone, Managing Director and CEO of AMC had this to say about the report:
"This report, entitled Risk Intelligence Metrics: An Adaptive Metrics Center Industry Report, is the first of many planned for release by AMC over the next 24 months. If you're a Venture Capitalist, or a Human Resources or Hiring Manager, or a Project Manager, or an Executive looking to task a team to meet a crisis, or someone wondering which community of practice to get involved in to help you solve your problems, there's a measurement model and an associated risk intelligence metric in this report for you. And you can take the model we give you, use it as a starting point, and modify it to fit your own organization and your own thinking about risk intelligence."
The report bundle includes the report, five risk intelligence models in Expert Choice software format, a revised balanced scorecard model also expressed in that format, and a a link from which one may download a 30 day Expert choice demo license to explore the models.
Chapter 1 presents a test for measuring relative risk intelligence of competing organizations entering a new area of activity;
Chapter 2 presents a test for measuring relative risk intelligence of competing knowledge workers in solving problems and reducing the risk of error in a particular problem area;
Chapter 3 presents a test for measuring relative risk intelligence of competing job candidates in solving problems and reducing the risk of error in job-related situations;
Chapter 4 presents two tests. One for measuring relative risk intelligence of competing teams in solving problems in a particular problem area; and a second test for measuring relative risk intelligence of competing Communities of Practice (CoPs) in solving problems in a particular problem area.
In addition, the main body of the report ends with Chapter 5 which considers alternative risk intelligence tests and explains how to develop additional ones. The report also contains a number of appendices on: the Analytic Hierarchy Process and Expert Choice software, how to prioritize among risk areas, the conceptual framework underlying the risk measures, References and a Bibliographic Essay, and acknowledgments.
