A Risk Management Program that Delivers Performance
Although there is a lot of attention and headlines about
risk management, and organizations are making investments in people and
technology, surveys indicate that boards and top executives do not believe risk
management is contributing to their organization’s success.
In this two-day seminar, we will discuss why this is
happening. Why is risk management seen as a compliance activity, or a periodic
review of a list of top risks, rather than an essential element in achieving or
surpassing objectives. Norman Marks, an Honorary Fellow of the Institute of
Risk Management, will share his view that our perception and practice of risk
management must undergo a radical shift if it is to be effective. He will share
his thoughts on:
Why are risk management programs failing?
What are they missing?
How can it contribute to organizations taking the right
What will it take for executives to see risk management
as helping them and the organization as a whole succeed?
What are the primary characteristics of an effective risk
This is not about the use of risk models or best practices
in conducting risk workshops. It is about making the radical shift from a
‘tick-the-box’ activity to one that is perceived as essential and even a
competitive advantage. The program will conclude with an exercise where
attendees will use what they have learned in this two-day event.
