Beware the Risk Manager - part of the problem or the solution?

Piece in Risk Management Professional today about the pitfalls of reliance on risk managers, from a presentation given by Psychological Consulting a couple of days ago.

While of course they have a product to flog, and so benefit from this particular angle, I certainly wouldn't agree that "[Risk managers] are the people who decide where the net is, how tight it is, and how big the holes are" (we facilitate that decision, and my god we'll police it), but his point on groupthink amongst like-minded risk professionals probably have some grounding.

Never thought of myself as part of the problem before though - does that make a maverick executive part of the solution?
