Risk management is not about avoiding risk … it’s about being aware of and appropriately managing the risks that deemed to be most critical to achieving organizational objectives. A risk-based approach to business management has always been core in high risk industries such as aerospace, nuclear power and pharmaceuticals, and in functional areas such as occupational health & safety. Over the past two decades its use has become more widespread as a result of both strategic and operational failures in organizations.
This session with expert speaker Duke Okes will help you gain a basic grounding in the concepts and methods for identifying and managing risk so you can provide support for effectively dealing with the risks and opportunities that your organization faces, whether related to strategy, business processes or projects. This requires knowing how to identify risks, how to evaluate and respond to them, monitoring and reporting how well the controls work, and acting to improve them when warranted. The core steps are the same regardless of application, and Duke will cover them in detail. This session will ensure you can help your organization carry them out effectively and will help you provide strategic value to your organization.
