What do you do to pre­vent and pre­pare for bad things to hap­pen? Orga­ni­za­tion­al Risk shows up in many forms: serv­er crash­es, office flood­ing, leg­is­la­tion changes, fire, work­place acci­dents, the list go on. Man­ag­ing orga­ni­za­tion­al risk is crit­i­cal as deci­sions made every day have impli­ca­tions that will impact your entire organization.

Indi­vid­u­als at all lev­els are now respon­si­ble for man­ag­ing risk in the work­place and need knowl­edge and skills in orga­ni­za­tion­al and oper­a­tional risk, prac­ti­cal risk man­age­ment, and under­stand­ing the oppor­tu­ni­ties risk can present to an organization.

This prac­ti­cal series will pro­vide you with a strong foun­da­tion on how to iden­ti­fy, man­age, and use risk to your advan­tage. Take one course or take them all to have a com­pre­hen­sive under­stand­ing or orga­ni­za­tion­al risk.

This series is designed for front-line lead­ers, super­vi­sors, and man­agers who are look­ing for an under­stand­ing of risk man­age­ment and how it impacts organizations.

For those want­i­ng to go fur­ther and learn more about this area, we also offer the Risk Man­age­ment Pro­gram, which leads to the Cana­di­an Risk Man­age­ment (CRM) des­ig­na­tion. Please note that the Man­ag­ing Orga­ni­za­tion­al Risk series is not a pre-req­ui­site for the CRM program.

A note about COVID-19 measures: If you see a program on our website announced as an in-person or downtown Edmonton offering, please disregard the format—but not the program. Winter, Spring, and Summer 2021 courses have been converted to remote delivery platforms. Register for a course online or apply to a program via email, and keep learning!

2-day workshops held in downtown Edmonton.
