“Risk comes from not knowing what you’re doing.” – Warren Buffett

Corporations have realized that Effective Risk Management can not only reduce the negative impact of crises; it can provide real benefits and cost savings.

Risk Management is the process of identifying, assessing, and prioritizing potential risks to an organization, and implementing strategies to mitigate or prevent negative impacts. It is a critical aspect of business and organizational operations, as it helps to protect an organization’s assets, reputation, and overall well-being. It is an ongoing process that should be integrated into an organization’s overall management strategy, by having a robust Risk Management Framework in place to identify, assess, and manage risks proactively, organizations are able to respond quickly and effectively to potential risks, minimizing the impact of any negative events and maximizing opportunities.

The Risk Management framework provided in this workshop is flexible enough for any organization. You can apply it to a single project, a department, or use it as a basis for an enterprise-wide risk management program.
