CFO Series: Risk Management in a Post-COVID World


With each new crisis, surviving organizations revise their risk management plans, often modeling situations which look like the one just past. Whatever crisis troubles your organization next, it is not likely to be another pandemic, but may resemble some other crisis from the distant past.

Research shows that top performing organizations do no better than their mediocre-performing peers at predicting the next crisis. However, because have plans in place to handle one possible risk, they are better prepared when a different crisis happens as a result of having important elements of a solution in place. Often well-prepared organizations actually end up better off because the crisis occurred.

Get your organization, and your family, prepared for the next crisis that may affect you.

In the 2021 CFO series, The Knowledge Institute has taken this popular series to a new level, collaborating with Executive Education to offer a virtual live option to enhance learning experiences.
