Risk management

Course summary

Rapid growth; mergers; restructures; office moves; rebrands; time sensitive projects; and governance. More and more managers are required to lead on complex and challenging tasks and one of the most important skillsets is the identification, monitoring and management of risk.

Whether you are working at a strategic, programme, project or operational level, this one-day course has been designed to share tools and techniques that will help you ensure that the processes of risk management become embedded in your day-to-day activities and decision-making.
