Course Overview

Participants in this course will gain a full understanding as to today’s best practices in Enterprise Risk Management (ERM). The course has been structured to be highly interactive and involving to encourage participants to engage with others to identify where companies have gone wrong in the past, why they experienced issues, what risks they missed or ignored and how these issues could find their way into their own organizations. Once these issues are understood, participants will learn the simple but effective methods on how to design a strong risk function and operate ERM processes which will help enhance performance against the strategic objectives of the organization, protect against losses and reduce uncertainty. Equally important, participants will be given the best toolkit to enable key risks to be identified, recorded, measured, stressed and where possible mitigated or accepted (dependent upon the strategic Risk Appetite for that type or individual risk) and how best to report the findings to the Board. All of the above, will help participants learn about the best practices to develop and maintain a strong risk culture within an organization which is aligned to the Boards Strategic aims.
