CNA NewsNote November 18, 2011
Many innovations are sadly, but understandable never brought any further than the concept stage. Even though everybody involved agrees it can be done. It’s new. Exciting. Cutting edge. But like many inventions, it could also become bleeding edge due to errors in the final delivery. So how do you avoid that?
At CNA we know that we have to keep on forward, which at sometimes means confronting risks. To secure the way ahead, Risk Management expert Peter Rechnagel is associated as the CNA Risk Director. This month he is the contributor to the CNA Blog, where he introduces his craft of avoiding pitfalls. And as he points out, it is all about controlling risks, not jusk taking risks.
As risks go, someone who can never ignore them, are the members of Themed Entertainment Association, a global association of hundreds of companies that creates compelling and exciting places. From small installations to experience spaces to full-scale theme parks, the members are an important part of the CNA network.
I am proud and happy that CNA is a member, and even more so happy to announce that I have just been elected as member of the board of this great association’s Europe and Middle East Division. For the next three years, along with other CNA activities, I will work on strengthening the way the members both work and think together, as well as working for building a common proof of quality to Scandinavian experience designers.
Have a good Friday and a great week. Don’t let managing a few risks stop you in moving your business forward.
