Join ETPMI for our monthly meeting! Throughout 2020, we will meet the third Thursday of each month.
"The Case of the Risk Management Department"
Abstract: Often, the original intent of the Risk Management Department is to protect the company's or organization's assets, especially from claims and lawsuits. Many departments focus heavily on financial and business risks with little regard for human assets. This case study will explore the gravity of ignoring human assets when evaluating risk in an organization.
Join ETPMI to hear Dr. Jerry Wood, Director of Program Development and Strategic Partnerships of Lindsey Wilson College discuss whether an organization should have a Risk Management Department, if Risk Management Departments operate effectively in projects, if new risks materialize with different projects, and how or should a Risk Department and Project Manager work together.
