Unit 1: What is Risk Management?
In this unit, introduces students to the concept of ‘Risk Management (RM)’; considering the background, type, development and change, guidelines, frameworks, action, prevention and competences.
Unit 2: The Individual as Risk Manager
The unit explores with the help of case studies how to be a successful risk manager. What are the features of good practice, planning and strategies?
Unit 3: Risk Structure and Environment, RiskSE
The unit continues to build on the themes of unit two. Using the course reader we consider the notion of Risk Structure and Environment (RiskSE) – how to assess; record; action plan; support, implement and secure potential risk management as a core strategy in any given business.
Unit 4: Managing Risk Processes
This unit helps the student explore how the risk process should be managed. This is aided by case studies from the course reader to inform and guide learning.
Unit 5: Managing Risk Projects
The ‘day to day’ management of a risk project”: a risk project is one that may override budgets; deadlines; and other strategic factors. The unit enables students’ to explore how to strategise, network and communicate risk factors with the core aim of securing the risk factors.
Unit 6: Managing Risk Diversity (MRiskD)
A business needs to manage risk beyond its own setting. This may include: impacting legislation; EU regulations; global trends and threats. Whatever the business, diversity is a crucial aspect of risk management. The core text is used to explore these aspects.
Unit 7: Risk and Change
The unit explored the two core elements of managing risk. The risk factor might be local but the looming change in legislation or compliance regulations might be a threat that is a risk to business practice should the organisation fail to plan and manage for this new risk.
Unit 8: Quality and Risk
Whatever the size or shape of the business; quality in all aspects of product or service provision is important. Using the quality and risk axiom “If you cannot size it, you cannot measure it, and if you cannot measure it, you cannot improve it” the unit explores how understanding this conundrum is if understood, vital risk management strategy.
Unit 9: Audit and Risk
This unit explores how the important feature of auditing risk assists in ensuring good practice and outcome. Hindsight is a wonderful leveller of business risk – but auditing is a tool that provides strategic vision and focus on risk factors and solutions.
Unit 10: Ethics and Risk
In this final unit we explore how managing risk should be considered as an ethical process. If the risk will cause harm or difficult consequences – is the risk worth taking? This is the ethical dilemma that businesses face. Examples from banking, commerce and industry will be explored in the unit.
