Smart and integrated mobility: how healthy is your risk appetite?
Risk appetite is the amount of risk that an organisation is willing to take in order to meet their goals. Governmental bodies like PTAs often have a low risk appetite. Smart and integrated mobility is here to stay and the PTA needs to decide on the strategic goals they want to realise with it.
The presentation gives examples of how these goals are set by the city of Utrecht (the Netherlands) and in Dubai (United Arab Emirates).
The presentation also gives practical guidelines for PTAs:
- Identify risks and opportunities;
- Assess probability and impact of those risks and opportunities;
- Determine response to risks in respect with the risk appetite: accept, avoid or mitigate;
- Determine response to opportunities: seize or enhance;
- Determine adequate control measures.
Only then, the PTA can prevent public bus transport losing terrain to other modes of (future) transport!
