Quantifying risk and input into decision making

Day 1 | November 26, 2020

The purpose of risk analysis is to provide guidance on what decisions to take in the face of uncertainty and risk. The decisions might be about how to control individual risks, improve the chance of success of the corporate strategy, bring a project in on time and budget, or chose the right investment. In all these areas, quantitative risk analysis provides far greater clarity than other, more qualitative methods, but many risk managers advise that it is too difficult to use or can only be applied to financial exposures. They are mistaken. My talk explains the basic techniques involved in quantitative risk analysis used in business, all of which are within reach of anyone with high school mathematics, and I demonstrate how the much richer information provided by quantitative risk analysis leads to better decision-making.

For Plato (428– 348 BC) « It is not the walls that make the city but the men ». Technology is overwhleming in all aspect of our life and profession including in crisis management.

ERM, 3 perspectives, one stage

Day 1 | November 26, 2020

Risk management is changing, as are the elements of risk management. One element is Enterprise Risk Management or ERM, where practical applications in organisations today range from a simple risk register and a heat-map of reporting key risks, over being a tool for deciding and monitoring the level of risk taking to being void and replaced by intelligent decision making. The three speakers have quite different views on ERM – and will discuss the pro’s and con’s of each their approach. The aim is to enlighten and challenge attendees perception and application of ERM.
