ERM Workshop | Calgary | May 24-25, 2017

Join us for this two-day interactive session where you can engage with your peers and colleagues in putting the theory of ERM into practice with instructors that designed and built their own successful and mature ERM Programs. This workshop is designed to help participants in building and practicing their skills in managing risk and running/contributing towards an integrated ERM program.

As a decision maker (e.g. integrated risk manager, accountant, operations manager, communications leader, security advisor, health and safety leader, and insurance broker) that needs to better understand their organizations/clients inherent and residual risks in order to better the organizations and clients success, you would immensely benefit from with workshop.

The key areas covered will include:

·         Introduction to risk management standard (ISO 31000 Standard) and change management. Understanding how to apply the ISO 31000 standard in your own organization and some key tools that can help in overcoming change resistance when implementing an ERM program in your organization.

·         Practice Root Cause Analysis within your team, develop appropriate risk mitigation strategies (avoid, reduce, prevent, segregate, duplicate, diversify, transfer (contract and insurance) and newly developed - adapt) for your given scenario.

·         Learn through practice the following topics: inherent and residual risk identification and assessment, what is risk appetite and tolerance and how do you make decisions with these concepts, aggregation of risk and what do you do with when your risk register holds a 1000 risks.

·         Understand the importance (organizational sustainability) of integrating various risk management tasks such as Emergency Response Planning and Business Continuity Planning into your organization.

The best and simplest way to describe the strategic risk management process is to say that it requires managing key input variables (internal and external environments) and key output factors (mission, objectives, strategy, and policies).

These factors influence how strategy formulation, implementation, and evaluation and control are related, and how a change in any one factor (e.g., corporate objectives) affects other factors (e.g., strategies, policies, programs, budg…
