Exploring the emerging trends in risk management
Risk management is fundamentally changing. It is now seen as a significant assurance enabler and no longer just about compliance. There is also a realisation that risk and uncertainty are different commodities, and therefore have to be addressed in different ways. Furthermore, is there really a need for complex documentation, registers, tools, and databases? Surely a flexible schedule risk analysis and simple modelling approach offer the best value?
Importantly, the risk mind-sets of investors, customers and users are also changing; from managing risk events to managing uncertainty that matters, from compiling data to analysing information, from ticking boxes to enabling decisions and from ‘what are the risks in my project’, to ‘how risky is my project.’
So, why don’t you be pro-active and optimise your own individual and corporate success by getting a glimpse into the future of risk management.
Drawing on a combination of 25 years’ experience, the presenters will explore how the risk management discipline has changed during their careers, and discuss some of the emerging trends they are currently witnessing in the marketplace.
A great deal has been achieved by the ever-growing army of risk practitioners, yet this advancement has not been plain-sailing, and arguably, the discipline has not advanced or matured at the pace that it should have. The presenters will draw on their experience from the defence and energy sectors to introduce some of the positive trends that businesses and governments are adopting, as well as some of the less positive.
This presentation will be interactive and aimed to appeal to a wide range of project professionals; no prior risk experience is necessary! Will and Phil will actively welcome others’ viewpoints during discussions.
Will Foulds is the owner and director of Redstone Risk Ltd. With 16 years’ consultancy experience, Will has witnessed first-hand, like many of us, the emergence of risk management as an established project discipline. In starting his own business, he hopes to be able to push the boundaries of ‘traditional’ risk management application.
Will has experience predominantly in the defence and energy sectors. He is qualified in risk management with a Distinction in his MSc, is a Fellow of the Institute of Risk Management and is an external examiner for Glasgow Caledonian University.
Phil Jakubowski is an independent risk management consultant, and is director at Jakubowski and Associates Ltd. Phil works with clients to build their enterprise and P3 risk capability, with an emphasis on effectiveness and providing insight for decisions. He has worked with many organisations in both industry and government; in assurance, practitioner and consultancy role, at strategic and tactical levels. These perspectives have well placed Phil to observe and take part in trends in risk and P3M practice - the good, the bad, the ugly and the beautiful!
Prior to specialising in risk, Phil spent his early career in project controls and project leadership roles. He is qualified to Masters level in project and programme management and is a full member of the APM.
This event is suitable for professionals with an intermediate and advanced level of experience.
