Full course description

Overview

Risk management informs strategic, tactical, and operational decisions within an organisation. Risk assessments are performed in order to identify and prioritise key risks to best allocate resources, identify opportunities for growth, and mitigate and respond proactively to risks that may negatively impact on the organisation’s performance.

At the end of this course you will be able to understand and apply the process of risk management within an organisational or project setting, understand the characteristics of risk and how these are linked to the overall objective of a project or organisation and its relevant context; the controls that should be put into place to identify, assess, mitigate and manage risk; the implementation of policies and procedures to communicate and manage risks; and the application of a dynamic risk management process activity.

Participants will emerge with a risk management process model that can be applied in any context and within any size of organisation.
