Risk Reimagined! Webinars

Resolver is proud to be participating in this exclusive webinar series hosted by Norman Marks and Richard Anderson.

Richard Anderson, the former Chairman of the Institute of Risk Management and well-known risk manager and Norman Marks, the renowned Risk Management author and evangelist, invite you to take part in two webinars. When board members and top executives are asked whether the risk management program at their organization is helping them set and execute their organization’s strategies, relatively few say “yes”.

Norman Marks and Richard Anderson have been working with boards and executives, as well as practitioners, for many years. They both focus on how risk management can be effective, enabling more informed decisions that consider risk and deliver higher levels of performance – while acting with remaining in compliance with applicable laws and regulations.

In this short webinar series, which will be followed in 2016 by full day, in-person sessions where they will host a conversation about effective risk management, Richard and Norman will share their thoughts on some of the most pressing issues relative to effective risk management.

The Relationship Between Strategy, Governance and Risk; Risk Appetite and Tolerance

Date: December 1st, 2015
Time: 11am EST

In this webinar, Norman Marks and Richard Anderson will discuss two related topics. The first is the relationship between the strategies set by the organization, its governance, and risks to its objectives. Their conversation will address:

  • How does a senior executive or board member gauge the effect of risk on corporate objectives?
  • Is it enough to review a list of top risks at every board meeting?
  • How does the board know whether risk management is adding value?
  • How do you measure success?
  • Where do reward and opportunity factor in?

The second topic is one that is heavily debated among practitioners, whether the concepts of risk appetite and tolerance can be applied effectively in practice. Areas they will cover include:

  • What is risk appetite? What is risk tolerance?
  • Is it a useful concept or an overly complicated piece of mumbo jumbo?
  • How can you help the board and top management set desired levels of risk and also help decision-makers take the right level of the right risks?
  • Does it make sense to be “risk averse”?

The Importance of People and Culture to Effective Risk Management

Date: December 8th, 2015
Time: 11am EST

Any organization is an assembly of people: people who take risk as they manage and direct the enterprise; people who decide how much risk is acceptable or even desirable; and provide oversight of the management of risk across the extended enterprise.

Organizational culture has been the topic of study for many years.

  • “Culture is how organizations ‘do things’.”— Robbie Katanga
  • “Organizational culture is the sum of values and rituals which serve as ‘glue’ to integrate the members of the organization.”— Richard Perrin

Richard Anderson and Norman Marks will share their views on this complex subject. They will cover:

  • What is the difference between the “risk” culture and the “organizational” culture? How can it be analyzed?
  • Who takes risk, and who should be responsible for deciding how much risk to take?
  • Is there such a thing as a single risk level?
  • Why do so many of us take different views of exactly the same risks? How does an organization decide which view is “right”?
  • Is one person’s risk another’s opportunity?
  • What about when the actions of one impact the success of another?
