Every business, no matter its size or the industry it operates in, is exposed to risk. With today’s high rate of project failures - construction projects over budget, mismanagement, the complexity of new initiatives, natural catastrophic events – there is clearly a demand to think ahead in order to foresee and manage potential problems.

Risk management allows organizations to have a mechanism to deal with and anticipate the problems and issues that could impact the achievement of their business objectives. The implementation of a risk framework is not a difficult process, but it could present challenges that should be considered.

This session will examine:
  • ISO 31000:2009 - Risk management – framework and process for managing risks
  • Challenges when implementing
  • ERM Governance Model
