Enterprise Risk Management


This programme will describe the importance of Enterprise Risk Management in keeping an organisation viable and adaptable. Enterprise Risk Management is not a function or a department. It is the culture, capabilities and practices that organisations embed in their strategy and apply in order to manage risk to create, preserve and realise value to the organisation. The environment in which organisations operate is more complex, changing at an ever increasing velocity, becoming more volatile, uncertain, chaotic and ambiguous. It is vitally important that organisations understand the connections inside and outside their operation, where the risks are currently and will come from in the future. In this way, the entire organisation can work together to protect the value of the organisation as well as take advantage of the opportunities that will appear.
