Operational risks include overproduction, low quality construction/manufacturing, or opportunities for fraud due to the culture of the operation. This usually stems from the lack of internal controls or measurement tools in the production cycle. Many small business owners are overly optimistic in nature and therefore this optimism creates an environment of invincibility. The owner needs to allow input from staff and outside consultants to monitor his enthusiasm and reduce the risk associated with optimistic beliefs.
