About the ERM Seminar Series
Agencies are under increasing pressure to perform their missions more effectively and efficiently, while the types of challenges that government confronts are growing more complex. Agency leaders are expected to keep programs and operations on track by getting ahead of risks before they turn into problems. Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) is an approach that leaders can apply to gain a comprehensive assessment of the biggest risks to mission success and provides a strategy for managing and mitigating these risks. Done well, ERM can improve positive outcomes while reducing negative surprises, improve resource deployment, and enhance organizational resilience.
