 What A Conservatorships Is

Sometimes called guardianship (depending on the state), a conservatorship is a legal arrangement whereby a conservator (or guardian) is appointed to make decisions on the incapacitated person's, behalf when they are found unable to manage daily life without being a danger to themselves or others. 

Conservatorship mostly deals with the management of the conservatee's finances, whereas guardianship deals with everyday care, such as help around the home, with medical care, etc. Britney Spears's conservatorship allows for both.

There are an estimated 1.5 million adults under guardianship in the U.S

Many companies use the insights of financial managers and external consultants to manage their risk. A one-size-fits-all solution is not yet in existence when it comes to risk management.

When we look at situations, we prefer to look for what is distinct. Instead, we should pay attention to the similarities.

  • Quality. The project should be developed according to the quality agreed in the project scope.
  • Risk. Risk and scope creeps are "silent" killers when the development team and managers are not expecting any threat from them.
