Risk Management Overview
Risk Management has become a hot topic in recent years. Various high profile corporate failures (Barings, WorldCom, Enron etc) were caused by the failure of these companies to identify, assess and effectively control the risks these organisations faced.
At the same time, more and more companies have found that large-scale change programmes have consistently failed to deliver the expected benefits identified in the business case. Budget over-runs are commonplace and the inability of projects to deliver on time has almost become the norm.
Project failures can lead to problems ranging from stock-outs to lost contracts through to the need for disaster recovery actions. Only a few of these failures make the headlines, but the cost is always felt.
The common factor running through these examples is the failure of organisations to manage risk effectively. By investing a little time and effort, however, organisations are able to identify risks at the outset and implement mitigation strategies to reduce the probability of the adverse event occurring, or the size of impact should it occur.
“I found the training incredibly useful as it starts from the basic definitions (what is risk, risk vs. issue, wording etc.) and ends with pretty advanced concepts of risk management. The pace of the presentation is exactly as it should be. I have already started to apply the concepts I have learned to my current project (i.e. rewriting my risk statements, creation of the risk map etc.)"
Thank you very much!!"
