Managing Cognitive Bias Risk – Recognition & Avoidance Essentials

Virtual Workshop



Cognitive bias is a systematic pattern of deviation from using rationality in judgement. It is inherent within all of us and learning to manage our cognitive bias, especially as it relates to important business decisions, is imperative.

Glossing over a risk as ordinary because of such a bias could jeopardize management’s view about the likelihood or impact of a risk event. This could lead to unexpected losses.

Risk management professionals are in a position where it’s their responsibility to know the difference between illusion and reality and how to identify and incorporate debiasing techniques. It is also their responsibility to recognize how their perception of things can impact — sometimes in a disastrous manner — their analysis and judgement. This virtual workshop will teach participants just that, and more.
