WC takes great pride in its track record providing risk management knowledge transfer. And still, risk management remains one of the top competency challenges for all public and private sector organizations. This is because external and internal environments rapidly change and evolve which continually morphs existing risks while new ones are relentlessly created.

Far too often, executives, managers, functional advisors and operational staff try to rely on ‘informal’ practices for managing risk. Informal practice includes risk identification based on ‘gut feel’ for what might happen. Fortunately, human hardwiring makes detecting risk by gut feel quite a good approach. The bad news is that informal practices can fall short where the waterfront of risks is complex and changing.

WC’s training goal is to equip participants with the means to recognize where excess reliance on informal risk management may pose a significant risk to achieving desired objectives and outcomes. We provide the skills and tools of ‘formal’ risk management and show how they can be used to augment informal practices. True risk management maturity comes from adding just enough formal risk management to fully activate the powerful informal capability resident in the human capital of all organizations, large and small.
