Most people assume that size gives a company nothing but advantages. However, there are always trade-offs. As companies grow, risk dynamics change drastically. Small decisions can lead to magnified impacts. Effectively managing the consequences requires not only adaptable processes, but also increasing layers of diligence, deliberateness, and spot-checking.

Chip Hargrave, director of systems implementation and support services for Walmart, will discuss how the company's size and scale affects its approach to risk management. Chip will share his wisdom about how a risk management program must develop as a company expands operations into more jurisdictions. This discussion is a must for risk managers from large or growing companies.

Note: All downloads and related contact information will be accessible to the webinar sponsor.
