Understanding & Managing Risk

“Useful sessions, the case studies were great.”

Wales Audit Office

Risk taking is a large factor for public bodies that function in an ever-changing environment. Poor management of risk can have a detrimental impact on an organisation, should the delivery of its key objectives fail. Indeed, there are well known case studies where poor management of risk has resulted in failure.

Understanding & Managing Risk is a vital online course within our Financial Management & Commercial Skills series. This course identifies and explains how risk can be well managed in order to deliver positive outcomes.  Participants will understand what risk management is, be able to recognise the differences and overlaps between performance management and risk management and will provide delegates with key techniques to overcome risk management in their own working environment.

At the Civil Service College, we 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.
