Course overview

Increasingly complex contracts and procurement structures often make it difficult to fully appreciate risk allocation and its implications. Prevention is better than cure. Late delivery, defects and cost overruns, damage to reputations, client relationships and the bottom line, can all be reduced or avoided through risk management. Unforeseen changes often occur to the design and scope which can cause further calls to increase investment.

Risk management is a fundamental element of professional contract management. Unfortunately it’s not often given the priority it deserves, which can lead to costly consequences.

This course is intended to provide a good grounding in the essentials of contracts risk management. If you are working with contracts and wanting to see how risk management can improve contract/project outcomes then this course will be of interest to you.

It is planned to address alongside usual forensic audit issues, the challenges that have emerged as a reason of digitization trends.

Learning Outcomes

The production of both paper and electronic records and documents is out of control. On a daily basis we receive and generate more paper, electronic and email records than we can manage. It is estimated that internationally 60 billion email messages are sent each day, many of them spam and viruses. However, international statistics also show that each employee deals with at least 75 emails per day. At an average of at least 2 minutes per email this equals 2.5 hours each day per employee spent managing email.

In South African approximately 28,544 million pieces of office type paper are produced each year. At enormous cost most of these pieces of paper end up in filing systems.

  • In addition to managing the quantifiable costs of paper, ink, storage, equipment and employee time managers need to manage risk. Without managing these records, organisations are at risk on numerous fronts, e.g.
    unable to provide information when required,
  • can’t make decisions, or make poor decisions based on inaccurate or insufficient information,
  • money wasted through duplication,
  • loss of information through accidents or deliberate destruction.

This Four day workshop will provide methods and strategies that will assist in tackling the out of control document/records monster

Organisations are increasingly facing performance challenges driven by the need for greater economy and efficiency. Though generally Value for Money (VFM) / Performance audits are performed more frequently in the public sector, there are an increasing number of private companies carrying out VFM audits. However, few auditors have in-depth experience of Value for Money /Performance Auditing given that proper planning and fieldwork are critical to achieving successful audit outcomes.

Course Rationale

Managing risks is a key element of effective project management. To remain competitive, project managers cannot afford to set up contingencies or control measures for every conceivable risk. Rather, project managers must assess each risk and develop a response proportionate to the risk. In addition, continuity planning is a good business practice and part of the fundamental mission of agencies as responsible and reliable public institutions. Today’s changing threat environment and recent emergencies, including localized acts of nature, accidents, technological emergencies; have increased the need for continuity capabilities and plans that enable agencies to continue their essential functions across a broad spectrum of emergencies.

Course Rationale

An effective budget is probably the most valuable tool in a company’s arsenal for setting and meeting an annual profit target. Many public sector entities have made improvements to their budgeting process in recent years, but are they following the most recent best practices?

The budgeting process evolves over time, and the strongest public sector budgeting practices a decade or two ago may not be best practices now. Public sector organizations, no matter their level of government, all face pressure to improve performance each year, which means offering more and higher-quality services while reducing spending.

Cutting costs has become particularly crucial, as many entities have been forced to serve their communities with dwindling budgets in recent years.

Course Rationale

Across the globe regulators are increasingly linking the amount of risk taken by a bank to the amount of capital it is required to hold and banks and financial services are increasingly being managed on risk-based management practices. The banks, their products, the regulations and the global market are becoming increasingly complex, driving ever greater challenges in effective risk management. A key lesson of the banking crisis of the last five years is that risks are highly integrated and to manage them efficiently banks have to understand these interactions.

Course Overview

One of the main reasons for the financial crisis has been a failure of corporate governance risk management. A key responsibility and duty of the board and directors is the governance, management and minimisation of risk.

Building on this foundation, the board and management can then focus on the optimisation of returns, and shareholder value creation and growth.

Where risk is greater than returns, there will be dilution of value and ultimately corporate and business failure.

This workshop looks at all the principal risks, external and internal risk areas, avoidable and unavoidable risks threatening most businesses and the action plan to minimise and manage risks – The Development of a Risk Management Strategy, effective risk solutions and fraud detection and the role of the internal audit.
