ERM Modules 1-3

Module 1 (Understanding the Fundamentals of ERM): TBD

This 3-day "champion training" workshop is designed for government leaders (at federal, state or local levels), who want to get a better understanding of "what it takes" to put in place an enterprise risk management system in a government agency. The program covers the fundamentals of ERM in the context of the public sector, providing participants with a grounded understanding of the key policies, principles and practices mentioned in the OMB A-123 Circular and the ERM Playbook. It builds on real-world case study, and practical exercises that help integrate all of the concepts in a comprehensive, yet practical way.  

Dates:  TBD

Cost: $2,950/module or $8,850 for the full certification

Location:  The GWU Alexandria Graduate Center (AGEC), located at 413 John Carlyle Street, Suite 250, Alexandria, VA 22314

Module 2 (The Tools and Techniques of ERM): April 10-12, 2018

This 3-day program will take a deep-dive into both the quantitative and qualitative tools of ERM, including risk measurement, robust data analysis, and impact evaluation. Working with one of our Senior Fellows, Dr. Bill Spinard, a seasoned ERM professional coming to GW from the private sector, you will also have to opportunity to learn about some of the best practices of "ERM-mature" organizations, and then practice and apply what you learned in a set of hands-on exercises, and a risk modeling simulation.

Module 3 (ERM Implementation and Organizational Change Management): May 1-3, 2018

This 3-day workshop is for those who are tasked with developing and implementing ERM in their agencies. The implementation of ERM in most cases requires a significant change in the manner in which decision makers view risk, and how they collaborate with others in balancing risk across the organization. The workshop provides an understanding of the role that organizational change management plays in ERM implementation, and a systematic methodology for helping individuals, teams and organizations understand and successfully lead and manage the behavioral changes required for sustainable ERM implementation.
