Risk workshops are a vital part of the risk manager’s toolbox and are becoming increasingly important in projecting the role and value of risk management. This highly practical one day course addresses the aims of risk identification and analysis workshops and majors on tangible advice and rehearsals of risk workshop techniques.

Delegates review the objectives of the workshops and what outputs are expected. Discussion on how workshops assist in the developing maturity of the risk management process and the added value created forms a vital backdrop to the contribution risk management makes to business success. The course also identifies how effective operation of risk workshops builds a key platform for subsequent stages in the risk management process.
