Risk Leadership in Challenging Projects, Programmes and Organisations Group
Purpose of the group
The purpose of the group is to drive improvement and consistency in how risk leaders behave, shape and inform senior stakeholders to enable proactive decision making. We believe there is a current gap both in the IRM's content, guidance and SIG's, that is not currently providing risk leaders with the support, case studies and training they need, both from a here and now perspective, but also in areas of development and training. This group will interface with a number of existing groups (energy, NEDs/CROs, infrastructure, complexity) however we firmly believe it should stand on its own to drive much-needed focus.
Risk for too long has let challenging projects, programmes and organisations down with basic risk/QRA approaches or sub-standard risk services, which have ultimately been linked to project/business failure. The IRM and risk industry should support and develop risk leaders, establish improved frameworks around them, provide best in class guidance and training on how risk leaders can guide organisations/projects/programmes and how they communicate, inform and influence SLT's and Govt bodies.
