Strategic Risk Management
Corporate risk is typically regarded as equivalent to financial risk. This is a major error because financial risk is only one element of an organisation's risk profile. Other risks include change risk, operational risk and unforeseeable risk. Taken together they can be classed as strategic risk, and the question is then how to manage risk in all its dynamic complexity. There is a huge difference between understanding risk and managing risk. This course provides a unique tool kit for all managers who have to confront risk issues.
