RIMS Workshop

Enterprise Risk Management

(A RIMS Fellow Workshop)

This workshop is designed for the risk manager who wants to understand the value a successful enterprise risk management (ERM) program can bring to an organization. Case studies, hands on exercises and an ERM Action Planner are used throughout the workshop to bridge the gap between ERM theory and practice.

Learn from the experience of your peers as you discuss strategies and challenges for implementing a successful ERM program.

This workshop is based on the Enterprise Risk Management (must be purchased separately) textbook published by the Institutes, which is optional reading for the workshop.
