Abstract: In recent years, several risk management standards have been developed and established which highlight the “management of opportunities” (MOO). Although risk management is considered to be part of good governance today, it still focuses mainly on the management of “downside” (or “negative”) risks. Possible explanations may be that: - the standards themselves provide little guidance on how to deal with opportunities; - there is evidence for a risk adverse culture in public administration; - there is a lack of understanding in public administration that risks are also part of innovation; - reporting on risks towards stakeholders as part of good governance is a difficult task for public managers who are acting in a political environment.
