TOTEM

Our TOTEM software is the heart and soul of SMART.

This unique automation of all the data produced during the execution of the 10 steps that constitute SMART provides several distinct advantages for busy executives.

First:
TOTEM enables decision-makers to have at their fingertips the full array of all identified risks – whether legal, technological, environmental, security, safety, political, or human – in an integrated database.

Second:
It allows managers immediate and random access to the status of any single identified risk – among the myriads that have been evaluated, ranked, and assigned specific countermeasures. This focused availability enables decision-makers to either confirm that proper countermeasures have been assigned or call for new ones.

Finally:
TOTEM provides a graphic representation of the full inventory of identified risks that have been evaluated for severity, probability, and countermeasure cost in a single ranked array known as the Risk Totem Pole. Thereby, they can readily ascertain their No. 1 risk, their No. 2 risk et al.

Consider the benefit of being able to answer these questions about risk in your corporation as you weigh the impact of required decisions:

  • How many other risks will be "fixed" (brought under some degree of control) if I adopt the countermeasure(s) proposed for any particular risk?
  • What are the risks that exclusively involve HUMAN LOSS (injury or death)?
  • How can I see the effect of mitigating all CATASTROPHIC losses (without concern for their associated probability or countermeasure cost)?
  • What is the impact on my total risk exposure of mitigating all risks of CERTAIN CHARACTERISTIC; for example, fire?
  • How can I see the effect of mitigating all risks that are LEAST EXPENSIVE to mitigate (without concern for their associated severity or probability)?
  • What would a Risk Totem Pole look like if my management priorities were in this order: countermeasure cost, severity, and probability?
  • What would a Risk Totem Pole look like if my management priorities were in this order: probability, countermeasure cost, and severity?
  • What would a Risk Totem Pole look like if my management priorities were in this order: severity, countermeasure cost, and probability?
  • What would a Risk Totem Pole look like if my management priorities were in this order: probability, severity, and countermeasure cost?
  • What would a Risk Totem Pole look like if my management priorities were in this order: countermeasure cost, probability, and severity?
  • What would a Risk Totem Pole look like if my management priorities were in this order: severity, probability, and countermeasure cost?
  • How can I see the effect of mitigating all HIGHLY PROBABLE losses (without concern for their associated severity or countermeasure cost)?
  • How can I review a summary of all risks classified with a certain Risk Description Code?
  • How can I review a summary of risks that have been assigned to a specific organization for action to mitigate risks?
  • What is the financial ranking of risks that are judged to provide HIGH Risk Control Potential (regardless of their significance in the Risk Totem Pole)?
  • Within my whole corporation, where functionally is my greatest vulnerability to losses (those functions that trigger the largest losses)?
  • How many countermeasures have been devised to totally eliminate risks as contrasted with those that only control risks?
  • What is the financial ranking of countermeasures intended to totally eliminate risks?
  • What does a ranked listing of all my CATASTROPHIC risks look like?
  • What does a ranked listing of all my VERY FREQUENT risks look like?
  • What does a ranked listing of all my LOWEST COUNTERMEASURE COST risks look like?
  • What does a financially-ranked listing of countermeasures that were PROPOSED but NOT IMPLEMENTED look like?

These are but some of the answers that can be provided TOTEM users as they allocate limited resources to eliminate or control risks.
