Creating a Risk Management Discipline

Presenter: Jeff Robinson
Director Global Marketing, Kepner Tregoe
Ingrid Dueck
Principal & Lead Consultant, Kepner-Tregoe
Most organizations have implemented a risk management program that identifies strategic and compliance risks. The compliance risk program is normally driven by sets of rules for potential unforeseen events. Unfortunately, rules-based risk management frequently doesn't prevent problems we didn’t anticipate, nor does it provide approaches for mitigation that should be taken when a problem does occur. Unforeseen problems are costly, negatively impact customer satisfaction, and often impact an organization’s reputation and brand. For projects and tasks, it's important to proactively evaluate and plan for the potential problems that could occur so that risks are managed and you're ready to respond with agility. In this session, through facilitated simulation scenarios, we'll provide an overview to improve risk assessment and mitigation skills by showing you how to develop the skills and real-world practice to help manage risk in your organization; keep your organization’s operations up and running during changes, fixes, maintenance, and improvements; minimize productivity loss or damage due to unexpected or unmanaged risks; stay productive through challenging situations; protect your assets and reputation; minimize financial loss and reputational exposure to your business by identifying potential issues and creating an actionable plan to combat them; increase agility; and increase your organization’s ability to respond quickly and safely when things go wrong. Our hands-on simulation-based method will ensure you learn and apply a practical, fundamental approach to identifying and mitigating risks and translating the insights into an actionable plan.
