This course will use a practical, coaching based approach to reflect upon critical aspects of enterprise risk management (ERM) that risk managers have found to be challenging. The course will include facilitated workshops, case studies, and some lecture. In exercises you will be assigned a role to engage the needs and concerns of different stakeholders who are integral to the risk management process. At the end of each session, you will be given an opportunity to note lessons learned and follow-up items in your “Our Risk Management Plan” in the participant notebook so that you can begin applying these ideas immediately. Cases, exercises, and workshops will be drawn from different types of organizations in order to enrich and diversify the subjects.

What the past participants say?

The content was on point, the exercises made sense - but Chris' feedback and commentary was the best part. His experience and perspective made the course come alive. I had reservations about how an online class would work - but they were unfounded; it was a great experience. Thank you.

I liked the journey as a whole. There were daunting moments but Chris is very supportive.
Stephen Gilmore

I like the combination of theory, case study and exercises. Now I can develop my dissertation on corporate governance with much more confidence when I discuss the relevance of ERM for the enterprise.

The course was a major step forward for me and have been enriched by the responses that Chris was returning to our assignments.
