talking straight

Risk should be objectively described.

If a risk isn't clearly described, it simply isn't understood and will not be effectively treated.

Poor risk descriptions all but ensure that valuable insight from the SRA never reaches the right ears.

Objectivity in risk description requires pedagogy, language skills and sufficient boldness to communicate in no uncertain terms so that all stakeholders will understand the risk - through its interrelated components - the same way we did when constructing it.
