How risky is your company?

Often you only start thinking about risk management after a series of disasters, NEVER after the first – which is typically explained as just a ‘one-off’!  It can take some time to accept that the disasters might reflect an ongoing risk that is specific to your business.

Your first response to a disaster is often tactical and attempts to deal with the issues in a localised way.

Localised tactics will only treat the immediate symptoms and may transfer problems to another part of the business.

Professionals often wrongly identify risk and seize upon a solution, which after development does nothing to eliminate the original risk and more often than not adds considerable cost.

This course sets out the benefits offered by a “whole of enterprise” strategic risk management framework as well as covering the fundamentals of treating risk.
