Managing risk is one of the most challenging endeavors of modern business. The way most organizations approach risk management is often ineffective and inefficient. Some attempt to manage risk in silos and fail to see the big picture. Others try to impose a one-size-fit-all strategy across the enterprise that fails to account for the complexities and intricacies of organizations. The effective, efficient and agile approach to risk management is one that is integrated into a company’s overall strategy and operations, and supported by integrated risk information architecture that provides 360-degree situational awareness. Risk Management by Design is a one-day workshop that will provide a blueprint on effective risk management strategies in a dynamic business environment. Attendees will learn risk management strategies and techniques for enterprise-level and departmental initiatives. Through lectures, discussion with peers, and applicable exercises, attendees will gain a better understanding of:
  • Risk in the context of business performance, strategy, objectives, culture, and values.
  • How risk management processes flow out of the business strategy and integrates into its overall operations.
  • Defining an information architecture that enables risk strategy and processes by providing 360° situational awareness of risk in context of business strategy and operations
  • The necessary technology components needed to bring together diverse and distributed risk management roles.
