Payson Hall, Consulting Project Manager at Catalysis Group, will present The Risk Paradox: How Effective Risk Management Undermines Risk Management at PMI Wine Country's June dinner meeting, June 13 at Legends at Bennett Valley, Santa Rosa.
About the program:
The road to the financial ruin experienced on Wall Street during the past five years was paved with ineffective risk management strategies. While risk management theory continues to advance, improving implementation on the ground has been problematic. Though most executives readily acknowledge risk management is an essential practice, few can point to the broad accomplishments and sustainability of their organization’s risk efforts. Why is it so difficult to build and sustain effective risk management? Do risk management’s intellectual demands exceed human capability? Are hidden forces thwarting our efforts to build and sustain good practices?
This talk explores the perceptual and human challenges inherent in developing and sustaining an effective risk management program and why many risk management efforts become paradoxical victims of their own success. Most importantly, participants will learn the systemic causes of the “boom and bust cycle” of risk management process improvement and what can be done to address them.
