Moving from A Land of Confusion to I Can See Clearly Now!

Imagine collecting a team of highly-qualified, subject matter experts who are tasked with completing an important assignment. You gather everyone together in a meeting room for your first team meeting, only to find out everyone speaks a different language, they cannot communicate effectively with each other, and it’s just a land of confusion. Very little progress will be made towards the assignment until the whole team learns to speak the same language.

Seem a little far-fetched for risk management? Actually, it’s not. Subject matter experts brought together to work on integrating and collaborating the management of risks in an organization are usually from different backgrounds. They have different education, certifications, demographics, life experience, risk methodologies and frameworks, that over time have developed into different risk languages.

The various risk management standards and frameworks have slightly different methodologies and steps, defining terms differently (even the word risk). It’s not surprising that the various groups in an organization have difficulty collaborating when they are all singing different tunes.

If you want to get the band together for a jam session, the first thing to do is make sure everyone’s instrument is tuned to the same key. If you don’t complete this first step, it is practically impossible to make music together when every instrument is tuned differently.

That's what this course does. It explains "how" to establish a common risk language and framework at your organization. It takes you from the theoretical to the practical, so you can create a plan for "what" you will do to implement the concepts into your organization's risk management processes.

You walk away with practical language, framework, exercises and processes so you can start playing beautiful music.
