Attendees will take back to their organization approaches to address:

  • Risk Management Strategy. Understand risk in the context of business performance, strategy, objectives as well as its culture and values.
  • Risk Management Processes. Flowing from strategy are the risk management processes integrated into the organization and how it operates. Good risk management is done in the rhythm of the business.
  • Risk Management Information Architecture. Defining an information architecture that enables risk strategy and processes by providing 360° situational awareness of risk in context of business strategy and operations
  • Risk Management Technology Architecture. The necessary technology components needed to bring together diverse and distributed risk management roles and integrate risk management into the culture and operations of the organization.

Workshop summary

Risk is omnipresent in the strategies, operations and processes of the company. The compartmentalized approaches to risk management leave the organization not having a global view of the risks. The response is often to centralize risk management, which forces different parts of the organization to adopt a single risk management model that fails to manage and monitor risks adequately. Defining strategy, managing operations and managing organizational change requires the ability to provide meaningful risk information for decision-making by boards of directors, officers, RCMP professionals, as well as activity area.

Benefits for participants:

  • Understand a top-down and bottom-up risk management approach
  • Implement risk management in the context of the company’s strategy, processes and operations
  • Explore different models of risk management architecture and their application to your organization.
  • Discover various risk management techniques and their application to your business.
  • Develop a risk information architecture adapted to business operations and processes
  • Communicate risks effectively between your organizations

As business becomes more and more complex in a changing business environment and subject to increasing risks, faced with increasing regulation, globalization and distributed operations, companies need a blueprint for managing effective, efficient and flexible risks. This requires that organizations integrate risk management into their organization as an integral part of strategy and operations, based on an integrated risk information architecture that allows them to have a 360 ° knowledge of risk in the context of the strategy and operations.

The objective of this workshop is to provide participants with a blueprint on effective risk management strategies in a dynamic business and risk environment. Participants will learn about risk management strategies and techniques that can be applied to business and operational risk management strategies, as well as department-based risk management initiatives. Learning takes place through lectures, collaboration with peers and workshop tasks.
