You need a direct line of sight from risk management to shareholder value in order to protect and enhance your organization’s value.
To do this, you must understand potential risk factors, decision analytic methods, and best practices for enterprise risk management (ERM). Explore the key methodologies and processes using a case exercise in which your team will identify and prioritize risks and explore risk-mitigating strategies based on quantified risk outputs.

  • Turn a compliance perspective on ERM into a value-protection perspective
  • Develop a risk management dashboard to monitor your risk exposure and ERM process
  • Align risk management objectives with overall strategic goals
  • Build and gain value from a strategic risk framework
  • Quantify and manage downside risk and upside uncertainty to create new alternatives for increased value
  • Graphically illustrate the factors bearing on risk and value in a format that can be easily understood by those not trained in decision and risk analysis
  • Characterize and assess risk tolerance and develop a risk policy that addresses these challenges
  • Prepare a board level presentation highlighting key risk indicators and triggers for mitigation plans
  • Discuss how to implement value-driven ERM and overcome potential obstacles
