Organisational risk management


In a world that has been described as VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous)…a world where it’s impossible to tell news from fake…where countries are becoming insular and globalisation seems to be a thing of the past. The only thing that is certain is that nothing is certain. It means that understanding the risks that a business is exposed to is crucial and having a formal way of identifying and managing risk essential.

This course looks at the tools and techniques for identifying and managing risks; the impact of risk appetite on the organisation and its staff and the importance of considering opportunities in conjunction with risks.
