Certificate in ISO 19600:2014 Compliance Management Systems (Online Programmes)

28 Feb - 27 Mar

Online Programmes

Course Overview

Duration: 4-week online course | 2 hours per week

Compliance, integrity and good governance have become an obligation and not a choice for the organisations.

Compliance is an outcome of an organisation meeting its obligations. It may sound and seem easy, but the complexity of the modern business environment, in combination with the emerging compliance risks create difficulties in achieving the strategic goals.

How do we achieve compliance? What is the role of the Board and the top management? What kind of compliance management systems do we need to have in place? How do we implement them and how do we evaluate their performance?

ISO 19600:2014 sets the international standard of Compliance Management Systems, which may apply to all companies of all sizes, across all industries. Application of its guidelines assists companies, Boards and Compliance Officers to create and enhance their compliance frameworks with consistency and customisation to their needs in order to achieve their business objectives.

This course will enable the attendees to create, review and enhance their Compliance Management Systems, their Compliance Framework and eventually their good governance, so as to identify opportunities, de-risk their organisations and protect their value.

The learning objectives will be further enhanced by the use of case studies, references, practical questions and quizzes throughout the course.

Certificate in Whistleblowing Standards & Policy Implementation (Online Programmes)

28 Feb - 20 Mar

Online Programmes

Course Overview

Duration: 3-week online course | 2 hours per week

“Blowing the whistle” is an obligation for the employees that allows the organisations to promptly detect any wrongdoing in terms of safety, ethics, compliance, good governance and financial crime. The significance of whistleblowing policies has been recognised by countries and regulatory authorities and we have noticed important amendments of the legislations in order to empower whistle blowers to speak up and promote transparency.

This course focuses on understanding the philosophy and mechanism of the whistleblowing policy and at the same time on assessing the difficulties, concerns and dilemmas during the implementation phase. We will present and analyse how to encourage employees to report wrong-doing and protect them when they become whistleblowers. This course will help the participants to understand the concept of retaliation and its negative impact on overall employee morale.

During the course we shall also present and discuss the bad practices of the whistleblowing policies, the causes, the risks and concerns and how organizations should deal with these cases that have caused significant damage to their reputation.

Finally, this course will enhance the understanding of local and international laws and regulatory frameworks, which influence significantly the implementation of the whistleblowing policy and affect the whistleblowers accordingly.

Governance, Risk Management & Compliance (GRC) (Online Training)

15 Mar - 18 Mar

Live Online Training

Course Overview

Globally, businesses continue to face challenges and risks associated with dynamic economic and market environments. This promotes a continual assessment of the adequacy and effectiveness of internal control structures that are designed to manage the associated risks. Stakeholders in business also continue to demand more accountability in organisational governance structures whilst ensuring business sustainability. To address the complex external and internal influences, businesses need to ensure a balance between governance, risk management and compliance.

An integrated organisational approach promotes appropriate risk identification and the collation of information for decision-making at the highest levels, with audit committees demanding insight into business risks and compliance obligations, how these are being managed and assurance over the key business risks. Viewed at a strategic level, GRC can enable information provision that supports organisational performance and adaptability within increasingly changing markets.

Many organisations continue to face difficulty arising from fragmentation across risk, compliance and assurance activities that are integral to the GRC environment. A common approach to risk identification and assessment that is driven from a strategic level ensures an effective approach to GRC that is aligned to the organisational strategy.

19 Sep - 23 Sep

Grand Hyatt Hotel, Doha, Qatar

Course Overview

KPI and performance measurement development is a discipline that involves articulating what an organization is trying to accomplish and then identifying the most meaningful and useful indicators of success. Performance measures, or KPIs, are a key part of any strategic management system, as they are critical to assessing the effectiveness of strategy implementation.

Meaningful and strong KPIs provide insight into whether strategies are working, whether programs, projects and services are on schedule, on budget, and delivered effectively. KPIs focus employees' attention on what matters most to success, and allow for measurement of accomplishments.

The KPI P program helps participants who are working to find meaningful KPIs, get true buy-in to performance measurement, align measures to strategy, and use measures to drive improvement to reach targets. This program is designed for all sectors—business and industry, government and non-profit.

The KPI professional certification program provides participants with practical tools to developing meaningful strategic and operational performance measures, and then develop their skills through a series of practical application exercises.
