This Formal Risk Management Plan Facilitation includes:

Review of existing risk library, including risks identified by staff, Board and stakeholders

  • Development of a comprehensive and manageable risk ranking system for all of the organization's identified risks

  • Development of a compliance register for risk

  • Development of definitions of risk rankings

  • Development of comprehensive risk management strategies for all of the identified high priority risks, including project plans (timelines and success measures) for all identified major risks

  • Development of an electronic template to manage and monitor risks

  • Analysis of ethical issues and strategic opportunities for all identified major risks

  • Upskilling of the CEO/senior staff by the external consultant in all areas of risk management to ensure future programs are analysed, ranked and strategies put in place

  • Upskilling of the Board by the external consultant in regards to embedding risk reports into the Audit committee agenda, Board agenda and evaluation processes

Capacity will be built through the upskilling of the CEO, staff and the Board.  As well as the benefits outlined in the objectives, this facilitation will assist in more effective strategic planning via an increased understanding of the environmental factors potentially affecting the organisation, the strategies to address these environmental impacts, the development of action plans and contingency plans, and the development of formal reporting and accountability measures as part of the risk management process.

Once all programs are analysed and a comprehensive risk management library  has been developed, risk management procedures for new projects, strategic directions, planning and reporting processes can be embedded into usual practice by the CEO, staff and Board.
