Misunderstanding Making Decisions in the Presence of Uncertainty

Herding Cats

This quote demonstrates a lack of understanding of making decisions in the presence of uncertainty and the processes and events that create uncertainty. There is naturally occurring variability from uncontrolled processes. Aleatory uncertainty is expressed as a process variability.

What Is Risk?

Herding Cats

ISO 31000:2009, ISO 17666:2016 and ISO 11231:2010 Risk is Uncertainty that Matters. This uncertainty can originate from the naturally (randomly) occurring processes of the project (Aleatory Uncertainty). A deeper understanding of frequent risk identification trends and biases pervasive during the design and development of the project's deliverables is needed, for it would lead to improved execution of existing identification processes and methods.

Fallacy of the Day

Herding Cats

These estimates can not the ultimate truth since the underlying processes that create the uncertainties (aleatory and epistemic) are stochastic in nature - stationary or nonstationary. This new state now has actual values that have influenced the stochastic processes to produce the probabilistic and statistical value of the future states. Each of these theories operates in the presence of uncertainty, driven by the underlying statistical and probabilistic processes.
