Are you a Supervisor, Manager, or Director with risk management responsibilities? Do you have questions about what you are doing and why? If the answer is “yes,’ then this is the right course for you!

Risk management is a defining attribute of the 21st century. Many companies and organizations are going through growing pains attempting to implement effective and sustainable business practices. While the concepts may seem to be simplistic, the implementation in an organization can be very daunting.

What is unique about this course?

  • First, this course is not a "cook book" approach. The course is meant to teaching "risk-based thinking" (as described in ISO 9001) which is being implemented throughout the world.
  • Second, this course is practical. There are many theorists that have parochial approaches. This course teaches the proven and broadly accepted strategies to manage risk.
  • Third, this course designed for a wide audience. The course is designed for personnel from all organizations and companies with no prior formal education in risk management required.

In this two-day workshop conference, you will learn strategies for success in your organization.

  • How should the corporate risk process be integrated into specialty areas such as Operations, Human Resources, Project Management, Strategic Planning, and Safety and Health?
  • How do we deal with non-linear issues such as those with low probability, yet catastrophic severities?
  • What tools are available to facilitate formal risk management in the organization and how to implement them?
