Risk Management: The Obscure Hero of Strategic Planning?
February 25 @ 12:00 - 13:00 ESTFree
Risk management is currently receiving renewed attention within public administrations in the context of the pandemic, geopolitical tensions, historical deficits, etc. How can public sector organizations plan and operate in a highly unpredictable and complex environment? Risk management aims to mitigate this uncertainty by identifying and analyzing the causes that could prevent an organization from fulfilling its mandate and achieving its objectives. Thus, risk management should be one of the driving forces behind the strategic planning process and, by extension, sound results-based management practices. In this presentation, our guest speakers ague that it is imperative that risks and their mitigation strategies be at the heart of the organizational priority-setting process as well as upstream of any investment and budget reallocation decisions. This webinar jointly organized by the Performance and Planning Exchange (PPX), the Institute of Public Administration of Canada (IPAC) and the University of Ottawa, aims to present the benefits of sound risk management in the context of strategic planning and the broader context of results-based management. The case of Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada will serve as a backdrop to this presentation.
