Although most programs and organizations implement some type of risk management approach, preventable failures continue to occur. Many of these approaches tend to be bureaucratic and time-intensive, which can consume valuable program resources. Most programs would benefit by improving, or in some cases replacing, their current risk management practices.
This course introduces a suite of practical and innovative methods that can be used to systemically manage risk across the life cycle and supply chain. It builds on older, more traditional approaches to risk management such as CRM and OCTAVE. It will enable decision makers to more efficiently engage in the risk management process, navigating through a broad tradeoff space (including performance, reliability, safety, and security considerations, among others) and strategically allocating their limited resources when and where they are needed the most.
This two-day course provides the foundation for a more practical approach to risk management that builds from a straightforward, broad-view method to a complex array of techniques needed for in-depth analyses of complex risks. Through an interactive learning environment using discussion, examples, worksheets, and exercises, participants will be able to grasp the essentials of the practical, easy-to-use techniques.
The course progresses as follows.
