RISK & IMPACT
Sierra Planning and Management undertakes risk assessment as both a discrete exercise in response to client requests for critiques of planned projects, investments, or restructuring, and as an integrated element of our detailed business planning and implementation services. As a discrete exercise, we can provide your project, strategic plan, transaction or other goals, with a detailed consideration of the range of risks, ranked by degree of significance and likelihood of impact, and our opinion as to mitigation as necessary.
Risk is highly project-specific but our services are applicable to almost any investment: new business, products or services; real property sale/purchase and development; sale/purchase of businesses; or implementation of long-term planning projects (land use planning strategies, recreation and other public realm developments). We perform these services as part of due diligence assignments, as project managers and as part of the public policy process. Our impact work includes the full range of economic, property-related and financial impact assessment for our clients’ investments and, through our partners, we provide environmental, social and cultural impact analysis. Risk and impact lies at the heart of effective business planning and project implementation. Our strategic planning work, economic development strategies, business plans and master planning all benefit from our focus on the risks to successful implementation of visions and plans – risks arising from variable access to resources and financing, changing market, social, policy and legal environments, regulatory approvals, timing of investment/development and competing priorities. Because we realize that successful vision requires successful implementation, risk assessment is a critical aspect of all of our client deliverables.Specific services include:
- Business Risk Assessment
