Ch02 6/5/02 1:45 PM Page 34 34 Chapter 2 Risk Assessment The reason for asking each of these questions is that, first, most event managers may not have considered these questions and thus you are operating from a lack of information, and, second, they allow you to conduct a reality check on yourself. How close to reality are you or are you creating problems that barely exist while overlooking problems that may be ubiquitous? Now, you need to review the material found in Chapter 1. Be careful to constantly check yourself.

Determining the correct questions to ask may be one of the hardest parts of risk management, yet the cost of asking the wrong questions can be enormous. If the risk manager emphasizes the wrong data, he or she is liable to miss issues and to cause a great deal of harm. This need to know which questions are to be asked is the basis of his or her decision making. A mistake here can lead the risk manager to overcollect data and thus “drown” in a pool of data, or it can lead to undercollection of data, resulting in a myriad of dangerous happenings or costly mistakes.

Sternberg challenges his readers to conceptualize how event risk management fits in with the overall theme. What expectations does it meet or not meet? Authenticizing the product. By authenticization, Sternberg does not mean real or not real, but rather he asks if risk managers provide a genuine experience while still protecting the public (Sternberg, 1999, pp. 115–119, 127–128). In Sternberg’s view, an event crisis is any event in which the visitor does not receive his or her “paid-for reality” for whatever reason.
