Intergovernmental Forum on Risk Management 2013
Ottawa Convention Centre •
Message from the Program Developer
Risk management’s importance has
increased dramatically since our first Intergovernmental Forum on Risk
Management. During this time, risk management has gained recognition as an important function …
Financial constraints make risk management even more important, and more challenging.
Experts are concerned that fiscal restraint is affecting governance and oversight, and exposes government organizations to increased risk. Effective risk management must lie at the heart of all major decisions and the ongoing management of projects, but how do change and cuts affect risk?
As the public service strives to be more innovative and transparent, how will the corporate culture change, and what role will risk management play?
Public sector risk remains in the spotlight, with the media constantly on the lookout for the next scandal, misappropriation, project gone bad, or example of poor financial management. Since our last Intergovernmental Forum on Risk Management, public sector risk management has made the news many times and on many different fronts:
- Procurement–the controversial purchase of the F15 joint fighter jet
- Food safety–salmonella poisoning traced to an Alberta meat plant
- Technology–the increasing use of social media in the workplace
- Transformation–organizational change exposes new and often unforeseen risks
These are just a few of the developments and issues the public sector risk innovators will address at this benchmark event.
Canada’s top event on risk in the public sector is back.
In the past decade, more than a thousand risk managers from across Canada have relied on this event for essential risk management information, including how to integrate risk measurement, ensure consistent application of best practices across the enterprise, and how to influence organizational culture with risk awareness.
These participants heard success stories from next door and around the world, and went back to their offices with lessons learned to apply in their organizations. This event’s tradition of providing the latest insights and information continues, and you’ll meet your peers and experts from across the public service and across the country.
If your organization is undergoing change, risk management expertise is crucial.
Learn about the role of risk management during major change, how to demonstrate the value of integrated risk management to transformation and cost cutting, and how proper adaptation to risk is essential to prevent problems and capitalize on opportunities.
