Session Description:
Leaders, you don't need one more distraction taking you away from meeting your goals, managing your teams and supporting governing bodies. By identifying risks at an organizational level, you have a better chance of ensuring one risk doesn't cause you to miss on your mission. This session explores what capabilities you should develop and what actions you need to take to ensure critical risks are identified and managed effectively at your agency — for example, having clear business objectives tied to overall strategy, understanding your business context and the impact your community partners could have on your agency, knowing whether you are staying in compliance with regulatory guidelines and more. This session will highlight what an enterprise risk management system can teach you about your organization and why you won't want to manage your agency without one.
