What is The RiskWiki & How Do I Contribute?

About The RiskWiki

This wiki is sponsored by Bishop Phillips Consulting (http://www.bishopphillips.com/) for the use and enjoyment of our clients, educators, the public and professionals involved in management consulting and risk advisory and analysis industries. It provides reference articles on management, risk and risk related functions including: Risk Management, Internal Audit, Governance, Compliance, and Process Reengineering, etc.

Over the years Bishop Phillips Consulting has amassed a large body of work and articles based on our experience with hundreds of clients and we take great pleasure in sharing that work with the world wide community. Over the coming months we will be progressively converting and uploading much of our body of consulting, risk and internal audit methods and models. It is a major task and will take many months, so please come back often.

While Bishop Phillips Consulting is, at least initially, the primary contributor, you are welcome to add material and expand the reference base. As the volume of non-BPC contributions grows, we will revise this front page to be general and non-BPC branded in nature.

How do I contribute?

Contributors are encouraged to:

  • Create a short biography and add it to the contributors section.
  • Add their organisations to the contributing firms page, with an appropriate description of your business.

To protect the content on this wiki from the random destructive editing that can occur on the wikipedia while still allowing freedom of shared editing, all contributors must apply for an edit enabled account. This is done by clicking on the login/createan account link at the top of the page as normal and completing the application page. A short 50 word (minimum) biography about you is required, but this is only to establish that you are genuinely keen to participate constructively. The information will be kept confidential if you desire. You do not have to be an expert to participate - just well intentioned, and desirous of having your work read by others.

We check the request logs at least daily, so you should receive your account details by return email within the day.

The wiki master reserves the right to move your article to other parts of the riskwiki, should it be deemed to be better suited to being in a different location from that in which it is originally placed. Initially, we suggest that you place your work in the general content index and we will place it in the correct topic set as it becomes clear where it belongs.

All contributions must be provided with the understanding that the work is public, and may be edited by others (although you may request the WikiSysop to protect your articles from changes), and that the material must be able to be used freely by readers, subject only to the retention of moral rights by you (i.e. you must be attributed as the author in any re-use of your work and your work must be represented accurately).
