Understanding & Managing Risk

“Useful sessions, the case studies were great.”

Wales Audit Office

The importance of understanding and managing risk in the Public Sector and Civil Service can hardly be overstated. Both sectors are known for their aversion to risk, but the question has often been posed as to whether perceived risks are being calculated in the most efficient way.

This course explores how risk can be effectively managed to deliver better outcomes, giving delegates the chance to explore how potential hazards can be viewed from different perspectives and to analyse the management possibilities available in various situations including operational, project, and reputation risk management.

Part of our Leadership and Management series, Understanding and Managing Risk is a one-day course designed to help strengthen organisations and departments.

At Civil Service College, we pride ourselves on our ability to tailor our courses to each attendee’s role and organisations, ensuring that each delegate gets the most out of the training. Our courses and trainers are continuously updated and evaluated to ensure that we are always delivering the best service possible.
