Description 
The most recent recession and its fallout have again highlighted failures by numerous organizations in identifying and managing risk. The size and reputation of organizations proved not to be the key to success. Again, we saw that failures can result in areas/industries thought to be "under control" through their policies and practices and/or regulations. A core activity of financial management is to effectively protect the assets of their organizations, without significantly reducing new ideas and growth. This brief program provides insights and approaches to identify risk and manage the above noted trade-off. The course is designed for financial managers looking to quickly build upon their existing knowledge and experience. It offers ideas that can be used immediately, as well as longer term approaches.

Major Topics

  • Rethinking risk management
  • Examples of failures
  • Establishing a systematic approach
  • Sources of risk: Environment; Existing financial and support/control practices; Operations; Capital expenditures
  • Specific actions to manage risk, including Business Continuity Planning
  • Introduction of techniques for further consideration

Objectives

  • Understand the sources of risk and potential actions and locations that may hide them
  • Gain an up-to-date knowledge of risk management and build upon and improve existing practices
  • Recognize actions/steps that can be taken now that can result in measurable benefits to an organization
