TPP Finance Breakfast Seminar - Risk Management


  • 1. Risk and impact Kate Sayer May 2014
  • 2. Traditional approaches Identify all the risks you can think of Rank them for impact and likelihood Multiply the factors to prioritise risks Present in a risk register Variations on this?
  • 3. What are the drawbacks? Spurious accuracy numbers are misleading Different levels need different formats operational versus high level strategic Risk registers require you to pinpoint a risk event this is unrealistic Creates illusion that you are managing risks by this process
  • 4. A different approach Focus on the management of risks Work on organisational capability to respond to unforeseen events Differentiate risks internal, predictable and we can act to prevent the event occurring external and outside our control or arising from the strategy
  • 5. Operational risks Managing day-to-day risks is part of the normal management job Managers describe the actions and processes in place to manage risk Then map back to the risks Identify gaps or overlaps Assess how effective these actions are Notes on further actions or changes
  • 6. Framework 6 Controls - procedures Risks Aims and objectives Planning Accountability Training Systemic Monitoring Staff welfare External review
  • 7. Strategic risks for SMT Focus on external risks and risks arising from the strategy Cannot easily be assigned to one team More likely we will have to respond rather than control Possibility of high impact events Likelihood difficult to assess too subjective
  • 8. Strategic risk register Identify major risks and impact Consider responses and how to manage Assign responsibility for management of risk Regular reporting and monitoring of risks
  • 9. Getting to better impact Impact = outcomes resources put in Increase the volume or quality of outcomes and outputs Reduce the level of resources (time and effort) put in
