Risk management is ultimately about improving the quality of decisions, such as:

  • Should this project take place this year or next?
  • Do we have enough capital to cover possible losses?
  • How to allocate our risk mitigation budget?

In an increasingly uncertain world, shareholders, board members and executives expect risk professionals to provide unique insights into decision making.

This workshop will illustrate how quantifying risks helps decision makers better understand how uncertainty can affect their objectives and assess whether courses of action are worth pursuing given the risks and rewards.

What is in it for you?

The key objectives are to:

  • Understand why failing to quantify uncertainty and volatility leads to poor decisions
  • Discuss the limitations of popular qualitative risk management methods
  • Learn key quantitative concepts to view risks as distributions of possible outcomes, rather than static single-point estimates
  • Using case study examples, apply key concepts to quantify risks and appreciate their effects on the likelihood of success
  • Understand the limits of risk quantification and ways to get around them
