This practical and intensive workshop aimed to cut through the complexity and multiplicity of concepts that are used to describe risk management, to provide a simpler and more coherent prescription for how organisations should manage risk effectively.
While the International Standard ISO 31000 was used as a basis for training and all terms and concepts were consistent with that, the workshop focussed on the interpretation and implementation of the standard in real life situations. It offered practical solutions to the problems many organisations seem to encounter when they try to move beyond the 'one risk assessment a year' stage.
The concept and elements of the risk management framework were examined and delegates helped to evaluate the effectiveness of their own organisation's approach to risk management. They will go on to develop a gap analysis and the basis for their own risk management (enhancement) plan.
The central issue of 'integration' was covered at length because most organisations struggle to comprehend its implications and how to achieve it in practice.
Feedback from delegates was very positive: for example “Nice job today - well done. Your open and generous style was appreciated by all.”
