Background to the programme

The emphasis on the areas of risk management, regulation and compliance has exploded since the recent financial crisis. This has put a significant burden on both organisations and their employees.  The rapid rate of change meant that the critical task of staying current and informed is challenging. With this in mind, we developed this new programme.

A risk management and regulatory revolution is transforming our world; the emergence of new risks and regulation are shaping our organisations at lightning speed and is making our prior experiences and knowledge redundant. Expectations from investors, shareholders, regulators and board members are growing in relation to risk awareness, management, assessment alongside compliance requirements are becoming mandatory. Our skills are tested at every turn. As a result, we developed this programme to allow you operate with influence at a business leader level in your organisation.

Putting your skills into practice

Risk overarches everything in a business and once the core ideas are understood at all levels of responsibility, good risk management can be applied to any type of risk in any sector, from health to pharma to financial services. Risk management theory does not change, it’s about knowing the risk you are taking, and good decision making.

It has implications for strategic and business planning, audit and assurance arrangements and the management and control of activities. Risk management should be a regular senior management team agenda item as well as a frequently discussed issue for Audit Committees, Boards and Governing Bodies.
