Gary developed the PreMortem Method of Risk Assessment in 2007. This method has been used widely in the business and management domains.
A premortem is an exercise that typically begins after a team has been briefed on a plan. The team leader will ask his or her team to imagine that the proposed plan has failed. As a team, everyone contributes to an exercise where potential threats and hurdles to the plan are generated. The goal of the PreMortem Method of Risk Assessment is to increase plan success rate.
