Risk appetite. Culture. Strategy. Harness risk for better decision-making and learn to manage the interaction between strategy and the broader environment.
In times of economic volatility, regulatory change and digital disruption, risk is a critical element in strategic decision-making. The Integrating Risk into Strategic Decision-Making programme will help you successfully embed risk into your strategic thinking. Which strategic risks are critical to avoid?

Risk has often been seen as a technical discipline; rather removed from the “real” business of what organisations do. Equally, although uncertainty has always been a key aspect of any organisation’s existence, it has usually been assumed away as too hard to think about or too nebulous to consider. If we have learned anything from the last few years, we should have learned that these perspectives cannot be sustained. Indeed any organisation that continues to think this way is probably headed for a rude awakening. That is not to say that addressing these issues is easy, but it is now undeniably important. I am endlessly fascinated by the conversations we provoke on this programme. Serious issues raised by serious people and tackled with real commitment. It is an absorbing and valuable experience!
Gain a thorough grasp of the risk-informed components of decision-making.

Thank you all for such a splendid course. I thoroughly enjoyed it. It once again challenged my thinking, offered that unique space for reflection and has galvanised me to action a number of points raised during the 3 days. The conversations during the breaks were incredibly helpful for us to confirm and agree how we might implement certain things once back in the office.
