Course Overview

This course is an advanced review of the theory and practice of global management, leadership and risk assessment designed to provide professionals with a more comprehensive examination of the critical competencies needed to execute business strategies effectively and manage risk. Our goal is to ensure that participants will be able to establish clear value metrics, embrace risk and uncertainty, lead through crisis and change, and enhance their ability to make effective critical decisions that result in cost, time, and resource savings that will benefit the organization.

We will do this through a combination of lectures, presentations, and experiential exercises designed to increase understanding of the needs and challenges that impact the global business environment and their effect on the organizations’ operations and culture, while placing emphasis on the leadership competencies needed to successfully achieve business objectives and strategic goals. By learning methods and tactics for analysis, implementation and monitoring of risk controls, as well as techniques for financial risk management that minimize exposure and loss, participants will be able to lead the way in classifying and measuring the organization’s level of risk while driving positive results and strengthening value.

Target Audience

The course is intended for senior managers, directors, field managers, administrative managers, commissioners, board members and other key administrators and industry professionals in the public and private sectors.
