Why You Should Attend

Operations Risk: Active Management Across Industries

To ensure we meet your expectations and maximise your return on training investment, we favour a classroom/workshop style set

How will you benefit?

In the past two decades Operations Risk Management has been increasingly pushed into the foreground by the work and requirements of international standard setting bodies. Through various recommendations as well as specific covenants, operational risk management is no longer merely a compliance issue facing most corporations.

Implementing an effective Operational Risk Management regimen is a complex process. At its core is an understanding of what Operations Risk is and how it can be best managed. All too often firms have seen the need to effectively manage their operational risks as simply an issue of complying with what the regulators require, rather than a disciplined process that serves to not only ensure a business’s survival but which can, in the long run, contribute to that business’s financial fortune.  

In this two day intensive course, we survey the full ambit of Operations Risk Management & Mitigation – from assessment to implementation. During this course we set out a number of key actions which need to be taken by management in the short and medium term in order to be ready for implementation of a proper risk management program. It is intended to move the participants beyond the local and international compliance requirements for operations risk, and into an understanding of operations risk management and mitigation as a value added proposition, increasing the organization’s profitability and structural strength.
