Leading Practice Webinar: Paper & Spreadsheet Risk Management vs Risk Management Software

Date: 09.09.14 - Tuesday - 10.00am - 10.30am - Webinar via GoTo Webinar
Organised By: RMSS  |  Type: Webinar


The need for effective risk, compliance and event management is increasingly becoming a Board level requirement as organisations face increased scrutiny from all stakeholders, including investors and regulators. 

In today’s environment an increasing number of organisations face the challenge of trying to effectively manage risk, compliance and events/incidents utilising paper based systems such as spreadsheets. 

Whilst in principal this approach can play a role in supporting a certain level of risk, compliance and event management, in reality it is fraught with limitations. This is not a new phenomenon, however many organisations are not making the transition to risk management software for reasons such as a lack of budget, lack of senior management visibility or inability to quantify the benefits of investing and transitioning to risk management software. 

This educational webinar will compare paper based/spreadsheet risk management to that of risk management software including compelling content on the pros and cons, the opportunity costs, the limitations, the core benefits and the complications that arise due to inability to articulate a return on investment.


Who and Why attend?

Irrespective of the industry you work in, this is a must attend event if you are in a risk and/or compliance role utilising some form of paper based or spreadsheet system to manage risk, compliance and events. 

Key benefits of attending:

  • Understand the underlying core principals for achieving best practice risk and compliance management
  • Understand what the key benefits and limitations are between using a paper based/spreadsheet approach to risk management versus risk management software
  • Learn how to build a compelling business case to transition your organisation from a paper based approach to one utilising risk management software for best practice outcomes
  • Through practical examples gain an insight as to how several leading organisations have made the transition from paper based risk management to software and how they have benefited to date
