Chief Risk Officer (CRO)
This five day course has been designed to help participants understand the best-practice essentials of undertaking modern and strategic, executive-level risk management (i.e. Chief Risk Officer duties). In the course we learn how risk management should be defined and structured – both conceptually and functionally – so that a CRO can offer the best support to his or her business colleagues, CEO and board. In particular, we focus on how it is essential for the CRO to establish an effective enterprise risk management (ERM) function that acts as a “strategic enabler”: focusing principally on addressing the challenges that impact the overall, corporate strategy and the achievement of business objectives.
We explore everything from the technology, tools and methods that a CRO must make part of his or her toolkit to the human resource and psychological challenges that he or she is likely to face in defining and establishing his or her CRO role.
