Certificate in Enterprise Risk Management

TBC, Qatar

Course Overview

Continued education and training is key for businesses to remain competitive in this ever-changing world. Signing up for one of our enterprise risk management courses is recommended for entrepreneurs who wish to lessen the risks involved in running their firms.

In the ever-changing Middle East business environment, encountering risk is inevitable. The ability to manage these increasingly significant risks now represents the difference between a thriving organisation and one that is struggling to deal with the challenges facing it.

Many businesses in the region have realised that misunderstanding risk can lead to disaster. The organisations that have dealt with the recession most effectively have realised that this requires extensive knowledge of risk management tools and techniques. This is exactly what you will find in our Enterprise Risk Management Certification course.

As the current worldwide situation demonstrates, poorly informed or improperly executed risk management can mean disaster. Conversely, a well organised and focused risk process and strong risk management team will enable your company to maintain and strengthen your edge over your competitors. Moreover, studies have shown that financial risk is only the 'tip of the iceberg', as nearly 80% of key risks are not insurable. This critical 80% of risks must be 'insured' internally with a capable risk management team.

Risk management has been catapulted from being a useful tool to becoming the very pulse of the organisation and the yardstick by which its management is judged. The key is to recognise that risk is not something that should be avoided – a risk is often an opportunity in disguise.

Competency Based Interview & Selection for Hiring Managers

TBC, Qatar

Course Overview

All great business leaders agree on one thing – that an organisation’s greatest asset is its people. Yet most leaders take a very unscientific approach to talent acquisition. This course will explore how you can take the risk out of hiring, by adopting the idea that past behaviour is a brilliant indicator of future performance.

Too often organisations hire incorrectly. They base their hiring upon trying to hire a mirror image of the previous incumbent or on a job description that is out of date or hopelessly ineffective. Effective hiring begins with identifying the qualities of individuals most likely to succeed in the organisation and by defining the results that you require from the role. Attitudes and behaviours are key.

Competency-based recruitment provides a roadmap and a clear guide to finding the right candidates for your roles. Used by some of the world’s greatest organisations, competency-based recruitment will revolutionise the way you hire.
