Topics in this section demonstrate how the Microsoft Operations Framework (MOF) Risk Management Discipline actually works when applied to real-world operations risks. A basic principle of the discipline is that risk management should be integrated into every role cluster in the MOF Team Model. The examples here are organized according to those role clusters, and a representative SMF has been selected for each role cluster.

As you read through the topics in this section, please note the following:

  • All of the SMFs in MOF are important and operations needs to manage risks in each. Only one SMF has been selected here for each role simply to avoid presenting an unmanageable number of examples.
  • The examples here have been chosen to demonstrate the discipline's applicability to the widest audience. They are not intended to be comprehensive or exhaustive. Microsoft Services and partner consultants can help demonstrate the application of these principles to a particular operations environment.
