Organizations, businesses, and even individuals operate daily in very dynamic,unpredictable, turbulent, and risky environments. Recent and on-going events including the global financial/economic crises, terrorist attacks, crime incidences, political strife, government policy actions or inactions, and a host of others continue to impact negatively on public and private organizations – sometimes leading to failures, declining profitability, shrinking capital, unanticipated mergers and acquisitions, redundancies, down-sizing activities, and so on. Smart and forward-looking organizations deploy and promote sound and robust risk management practices, as well as corporate governance and compliance structures and systems at every level or aspect of their operations in order to improve competitive advantage, enhance product and service quality and delivery, minimize costs, maximize business opportunities, increase profitability, and achieve the overall objectives set by board and management.
This well-researched and pragmatic programme is specially designed to enable organizations adopt a world-class approach to Enterprise Risk Management; understand practical issues in ERM Framework design, development, review, and successful implementation; and also promote sound corporate governance and
compliance structures and systems.
