To that end, I had an opportunity to meet with Dr. Vernon Grose of the Omega Systems Group this week. His organization has been providing systematic risk management services for a few decades. In particular, his methodology has a couple key components that I found to be particularly interesting. First, Omega advocates a top-down workshop approach to initiating risk assessment as a lead-in to making risk management decisions. This workshop has some similarities to the NSA IAM/IEM approach, but differs by focusing on the executive/strategic level, making use of scenarios for planning. Second, Dr. Grose brings to bear a systems engineering approach to risk management wherein all scenarios are evaluated against a minimum of 3 countermeasures, looking uniquely at the costs of reducing or eliminating the losses associated with a given risk scenario based on a refined ranking approach.

Vernon L. Grose, BS, MS, DSc
Described in Business Week as a "founding father" of the application of systems methodology to managing risk, Vernon Grose enjoys worldwide recognition as the creator of a patented methodology that empowers organizations to identify, rank and manage all their risks -- systematically.
Vern originated the widely-adopted SMART (Systems Methodology Applied to Risk Termination) technique for managing every type of risk - legal, political, social, economic, and technological - which was successfully utilized to combat terrorism at the 1984 Olympics in Los Angeles.
Omega founder Vernon L. Grose was awarded Whitworth University's 2013 Distinguished Alumni Award. This Whitworth video describes Grose's lifetime of achievements, including his contributions to risk management.
Vern's interdisciplinary perspective on risk management is based on over 50 years of personal involvement - having served as an executive in three major corporations, university professor in Europe as well as the United States, and consultant to such firms as AT&T, EXXON, and IBM.
Holding a BS in Physics, MS in Systems Management, and honorary DSc, he was a member of the Applied Physics Staff at The Boeing Company from 1952-59, where he performed the first Boeing tests that combined three dynamic environments simultaneously and wrote the development test program for the Minuteman ICBM.
Vernon Grose
Vern has been interviewed hundreds of times as a risk management and aviation authority with expertise in identifying, analyzing and preventing catostrophic transportation accidents.
Vern was affiliated with Litton Industries in 1959-62 as Director of Reliability as well as Program Manager for Project SPARR, an Air Force program of basic and applied research on space system problems. In 1962, he joined Northrop Ventura as Director of Applied Technology - responsible for all engineering test activities and the disciplines of chemistry, metallurgy, reliability, configuration management, and value engineering on the Earth Landing Systems for NASA Projects Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo. As Chief of Reliability at Rocketdyne, a division of Rockwell Corporation, he continued his involvement in the Gemini and Apollo Programs.

Managing Risk by Vernon Grose Vern's 2006 book -- SCIENCE BUT NOT SCIENTISTS: How Everything Began - Chance or Creation? -- recounts his central role in winning the most significant victory for science since the Scopes Trial of Science but Not Scientists by Vernon Grose 1925. Reviewers of his best-selling Prentice Hall book, MANAGING RISK: Systematic Loss Prevention for Executives, called it "the most influential book on the subject in this decade. Widely used in universities, it is now in its third printing. His professional papers have been published internationally in over 60 journals and periodicals.
A featured guest on the Today Show, Good Morning America, Prime Time Live, CBS Newswatch, ABC 20/20, BBC-London, O'Reilly Factor and many other television programs, he has given over 100 interviews on CNN as their Risk and Aviation Analyst. He provided over 170 news interviews related to the 1996 explosion of TWA Flight 800. Dr. Grose is a FOX News Contributor and was being interviewed just as UAL 175 impacted the World Trade Center Tower 2 on 11 September 2001. His viewpoints have been published in such periodicals as Time, USA Today, US News & World Report, Chicago Tribune, Los Angeles Times, Washington Post, and Christian Science Monitor.
Grose is a graduate of Whitworth University, a private liberal arts university based in Spokane, Washington. In 2013, the university awarded Grose its Distinguished Alumni Award.
