Board development programme: Risk management - Liverpool
Date 12 June 2019
The board has overall responsibility and accountability for risk. For Boards to discharge their role effectively members need to have a basic understanding of risk and risk management. Used effectively, risk management is a useful management tool to help ensure that not only does the board and its committees focus on the right things, but it should also provide comprehensive assurance that risks are being managed to the best of the organisations ability thus reducing the likelihood of risks materialising.
Risk management can be seen as a rather technical subject which adds layers of bureaucracy to an organisation without adding value. This can lead to boards treating risk management as an administrative process and focussing on capturing and recording risk rather than actually ensuring that risks are managed.
This session provides a practical view of what board members (executive and non-executive) and board stakeholders need to know about risk management to help demystify risk, ensure that risks are captured and articulated appropriately and ensure that risk reporting focusses on the management of risk as opposed to the risk itself.
This programme is aimed at Board members as recipients of risk reports and executive risk leads and those tasked with writing Board/Committee level risk reports. It is not a deeply theoretical workshop on the technical aspects of risk management.
Who should attend?
- Board members (Executive and Non-Executive)
- Those tasked with leading on preparing Board Assurance Frameworks and Risk Reports for boards and committees.
What will I learn?
- Refresh understanding of the principles of risk management
- Ensure the right focus is retained when appraising the effectiveness of the organisation’s management of risk
- Enable you to form a view of how effective the risk management framework is in your own organisation
