Risk Management

What will we cover?

Covid-19 has brought risk management to the fore. How many of us had prepared for this?

We begin by distinguishing risks and issues, before considering various examples of risk and identifying four approaches to risk management.

A key tool is a risk matrix, which plots impact against likelihood. The group discusses how the basic model might be improved. Do variables such as manageability provide insight or just overcomplicate? Could models such as ‘Suns and Clouds’ from Evans help? 

The group then considers the merits of creating a risk (and issue) register and how best to do so. Yet identifying risks is clearly only the first step in a risk management strategy, so we discuss what that involves and how to adapt tried and tested processes to your business.

We then suggest that a potent source of risk comes from within – strategy – and encourage delegates to carry out strategic due diligence on their own companies.

What will I learn?

  • The difference between risks and issues

  • Four approaches to risk management, as well as their pros and cons

  • What we mean by Black Swans and the relevance to your business.
