Risk Intelligence

Course Description

Conventional risk management is limited for many reasons. One of which is the underlying assumption that people make rational decisions after carefully weighing all of the information available. However, this assumption may not hold due to biases in the manner in which people evaluate and draw inferences from the information they have. To address this limitation, this 2 day course presented by Dr Ricardo Valeridi aims to improve the risk intelligence of decision makers by quantifying and reducing overconfidence through calibration exercises.

The course is designed to enhance the "risk intelligence" of decision makers through a methodology for quantifying overconfidence and under-confidence based on research in psychology and economics. To improve risk intelligence, the course is designed to provide immediate feedback to participants on the accuracy of their confidence about various decisions to enable more realistic estimates of future outcomes.

Target Audience

Project Managers, Senior Managers and anyone who is responsible for taking Risk into the decision making process.
