Course Description

Risk Management Update for Boards/Senior Executives 3 - 4 hour Tailored Sessions Overview Training for Senior Executives in larger organisations is the single most important part of any risk management process. The Board and Senior Management Team have to be ?on board' in order to give the risk management process weight - and to understand how good practice contributes directly to service delivery. or to profitability. or both. Directors, particularly, need to understand their own role and accountabilities in ?making it happen' (particularly in light of the Corporate Governance). Without the support and ?buy-in' of the Board and Senior Management team, any risk management process will inevitably falter - and fail to deliver the benefits expected. A key concern for senior managers is how to deal with Corporate Risk Management and Corporate Governance - what is required and how far do you have to go?. We pride ourselves in specialising in this vital area of business risk management - working at Board/Senior Management levels with many large organisations in both the Private and Public sectors. We understand the need to make such sessions hard-hitting but practical, with a need to focus on business-specific issues and concerns. Most importantly, we understand that the sessions should be suitably engaging and have to lead somewhere - not just being ?interesting but irrelevant' training that can be forgotten when finished. Action Planning is the focus throughout. These sessions, always tailored to specific local ?politics' and key risk concerns, are the ?jewel in the crown' in our training programme and are only presented by Human Applications' most senior consultants, each with extensive previous practical experience at this level of management.
