We are entering a different governance paradigm for disability services and traditional risk frameworks and approaches wonât cut it. Rethinking risk management is critical in an environment of more complex risks, more frequent disruptions, more public scrutiny and a changing consumer-led model of service delivery. Building the effectiveness and capabilities with risk management will support good governance, help prevent harms, assist your organisation to achieve your strategic goals and be more resilient. But that will not happen organically. Boards need to play a pivotal role.
Anthony Black, Senior Enterprise Risk Consultant at Ansvar Risk, has a strong care sector and risk management background. He will present and lead a discussion on Boards stepping up their risk leadership role and explore the risk environment for the disability sector in Australia and propose different thinking and ways that go beyond traditional risk management. Actions for Boards will be recommended and a case study of an organisation pursuing a new risk approach will be explored.
