Risk Management is no longer a defensive strategy. Firms are leveraging risk management not only to mitigate risks but also to profit from them. It is clear that the construction marketplace has changed over the last several years as owners are more educated and the competition is tougher and, as a result, businesses are running fast and hard for tighter margins. While the market has changed, the leaders of our industry have evolved the way they view risk management. However, much of the industry still operates under the tactical view of risk. Best-in-class construction firms are using risk management as a strategic asset to not only better protect the company, but also to increase value and profitability.

During this course you will learn how to:
  • Transform risk management from a cost center to a profit center
  • Determine the importance of shifting from a tactical to a strategic view of risk management
  • Understand the critical elements needed to defensively (protect) and offensively (increase the value) utilize risk management
  • Recognize what the value of a structure and enterprise approach to risk management can have on your strategic plan and the future of your company
