Risk Management 
Live Online Course

We now live in a world of uncertainty and risk.  Let’s look at a few areas:  Climate change.  Increasing inflation.  Great resignation. New Covid variants.  High energy prices. Collapsing stock markets. 

Reliability engineers and quality professionals also work in an uncertain and risky world.   New operational models  New ‘make or buy’ decisions.  Supply chain disruptions. Complex technologies.  Cyber attacks.  Project cost/schedule/quality variabilities.

McKinsey says the #1 professional skill for employability is complex problem solving.  Risk management, specifically risk-based problem solving and risk based decision making, is now the essential skill for reliability and quality professionals.

Greg Hutchins PE CERM, the workshop course instructor, coined the term: Future of Quality: Risk®.  Greg developed the CERM: Risk Based, Problem Solving | Risk Based, Decision Making® system to help reliability and quality professionals address today’s volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity (VUCA).
