Risk Management Shared Learning Webinar

16 Oct 2014 - 10:00am

The Welsh public services landscape is changing, fact!

The impact of these changes will affect everyone and everything from service users and service providers to those charged with governance oversight for the organisation. Some services will not be affordable, and some will be delivered by partner organisations, significantly changing the risk profile faced.

So, what is this going to mean for risk management in the public sector? The need to balance risk, innovation and change is paramount, but the journey is in its infancy.

This webinar addressed the governance and risk management issues public services will need to consider during the great period of change that lies ahead. Here you can listen to these discussions from the Webinar [Opens in new window].
