To gain an in depth understanding of Risk Metrics, to develop the ability to design a Risk Metrics program and to establish the risk management processes associated with Risk Metrics

The US business environment as well as that of other countries in recent times have experienced significant risk episodes with substantial risk consequences .To the extent the risk conditions that caused a risk episode to occur could have been identified and immediate corrective action taken, the risk event may have been prevented or modified.  Sound risk management practices together with a set of effective risk metrics that could have possibly avoided or moderated many of the risk consequences that were experienced. 

This presentation allows the participants to focus on the concept of risk metrics and a blueprint for creating a set of risk metrics as well as to view a large sampling of risk metrics that maybe employable.  It is intended that the risk metrics displayed would help participants consider the generic risk metrics that would apply to their business or organization as well as being helpful in considering risk metrics that could be specific to their specific business or organizational activities. 

This presentation is designed to help a business/organization adopt and formulate a key component of its risk management process. It should prove to be helpful as a continued risk management learning experience for individuals with responsible for managing a business or organization or for overseeing the management of the risk environment of a business or organization.
