Abstract

The processes effectiveness means their ability to achieve the planned aims. While planning the aims, one should currently take into consideration not only the quality parameters but also all of the criteria reflecting the expectations stated by the interested parties. Influence on the processes by the factors disturbing their realization requires such their monitoring and regulation to make the aims achievable. In return, it requires development and application of the processes assessment methods enabling pointing out their pivotal points and the possibilities of their monitoring. The study proposes the following combination: process approach and risk assessment enabling pointing out the “risky” processes as well as their “risky” aspects. The risk of the particular process has been evaluated by taking advantage of two methods considering various risk parameters as well as various individual criteria for assessing the mentioned parameters. Application of the developed methodologies of risk analysis and assessment of its acceptability allowed for formulating the conclusion that while risk assessment the following aspects are important: choice of the risk parameters, application of the individual assessment criteria of these parameters and taking advantage of the risk acceptability scale of the process, depending on the phase of its improvement. Properly prepared method of risk assessment gives the chance for the effective monitoring of the process risk refraining from its particular threats.
