A Corporate Leader’s Toolkit
Since completing the programme, I often find myself referring to the programme’s case studies at work. I use them to bring context to conversations, and I find my colleagues can relate to their key takeaways. The cases were fascinating, and offered powerful, real-life examples of risk management at its best and worst. I was surprised at how much I could learn from risk professionals in other industries. I realised that we share many similar experiences, and I also gained brand new insights that have shaped the way I look at the world around me. I expected high-quality teaching from CJBS, but the lecturers and guest speakers exceeded my expectations. They all offered extraordinary global perspectives based on deep experience in risk management.
This programme counts towards the Cambridge Judge Business School General Management Certificate of Achievement. On completing the GMCA you will be eligible to become an associate member of Cambridge Judge Business School’s global network of graduates and business-focused University of Cambridge alumni, faculty and staff.
The facilitators led us through very practical approaches to understand and respond to a wide range of real challenges. This was no ivory tower theorising – I really benefited from the lessons shared by faculty and participants. Even as an experienced consultant to Board level in nationally significant organisations, this programme pushed me to realise how much more distance I need to put between risk management – even at enterprise level; use of scenarios to stress-test decision options; and the use of ‘shock’ scenarios which pose a risk of ruin.
This programme led me to re-design, enlarge and bring extra rigour to the approaches I now offer clients – with resoundingly positive feedback!
