Reshaping Corporate Strategy POST COVID 19

Background

In a very short time, COVID-19 has eclipsed nearly every other pandemic on record in the past 150 years, in both size and impact. In addition to the disruption of millions of lives, the economic damage has been and will be, significant and far-reaching.

To mitigate risk, organizational leaders usually attempt to account for every uncertainty, but recent events present challenges few if any, boards and executives saw coming. The impact of these events will not be uniform across all organizations, be they private, governmental, or non-governmental. That notwithstanding, most board members, senior managers, and others in leadership positions share the same top-of-mind question — what role can strategy and change management, as a corporate function, play to limit the long-term damage occasioned by the pandemic? Specifically, what role can strategy and change management play in helping the organizations fully appreciate the impact, respond, recover, adapt, and thrive beyond the effects of the pandemic? Further, how can the response, recovery, and adaption ensure future resilience against situations similar to that of COVID-19?

Organizational teams are keeping essential services running to the extent that they can during the pandemic. Meanwhile, it is imperative for the organizational senior leaders, particularly senior strategy executives, to reflect on the lasting implications of COVID-19 and what they can do to best position their stakeholders, their processes, and available technology to recover and thrive in the long term. Certain key shifts in strategic direction, team composition, process re-orientation, and technology retooling can help the senior leadership successfully guide their organizations through the pandemic.

The Options

Key activities that an organization’s senior leadership can pursue to help their organization recover from recent events and thrive in the long term include the following:

  • Balance the here and now with a long-term view: Review of Key Strategic Objectives vis-a-vis present realities as well as the impact of those changes in the future;
  • Embrace uncertainty by planning for possible multiple alternate futures: scenario building can help expose potential risks as well as opportunities based on the alternate futures;
  • Reconsider what is possible: adaptation of agile processes;
  • Elevate the orchestrator role: Who is mandated to look at the organization strategy from a pandemic and continuity nexus perspective;
  • Tune into purpose: prioritize and demonstrate purpose and social responsibility in decision making;
  • Workforce Adaptation: with respect to the workforce relearn, retool and refocus;
  • Agile Change Management Approach Post Covid-19: build agility into the change management process to assure responsiveness to future situations;
  • Technology Strategy Review: revisit to assure alignment with pandemic-like situations (e.g. support for remote working);
  • Re-engineer risk management processes to be more responsive and relevant COVID-19 like situations: development of relevant key risk indicators, monitoring, and early warning thresholds.

The Opportunity

While there is not a one-size-fits-all approach to dealing with recent events, we believe this offers an unparalleled opportunity to create value and positive societal impact rather than simply reverting to the status quo for the university. The university’s senior leadership needs to be equipped to undertake a leading role in shaping the strategic focus of the university in order to stem the long-term negative impact of these events and emerge stronger in the long run.

We would therefore like to invite the senior leadership of the university to a 5-day workshop on reshaping Corporate Strategy Post Covid 19.

A-16 Fraud Risk Management Training @ Naivasha/Mombasa/Nairobi/Online - call to confirm
Jun 6 @ 8:00 am – Jun 9 @ 5:00 pm

No single entity (public or private) is immune to fraud!

Only those that are prepared can minimize the impact of fraud on their business!

Understand and manage fraud-related risks

 

4[1]-Day Fraud Risk Management Training[2]

All organizations, large and small, public and private face fraud-related risks. In the public sector, the Auditor General reports chronicle large losses of public resources. Globally, organizations in the private sector lose not less than 5% of their revenues to fraud. The situation is exacerbated by the ubiquitous use of technology that speeds up fraudulent activities and leads to higher losses.

Organizations need sound anti-fraud and comprehensive proactive anti-fraud approaches. A risk-based approach would enable the effective use of resources used in the prevention and detection of fraud and commensurate responses. The approach requires fraud risk management: identification, quantification, mitigation and monitoring of fraud-related risks.

In this course participants will learn the specifics of fraud and fraud risk management. They will understand the most common types of fraud such as manipulation of assets, financial statement fiddling, and corruption. The course will focus on how organizations can counter fraud as part of their risk management initiatives, including:

  • Identifying, assessing and managing fraud risks;
  • Entrenching fraud risk management culture in organizations;
  • Developing systems of internal control that mitigate fraud risks;
  • Responding to identified cases of fraud;
  • Technology in fraud prevention, detection and response;
  • Fraud investigations

Jun 27 @ 8:00 am – Jun 30 @ 5:00 pm

Course Title: Successful Procurement, Installation, and Implementation of ERP

Duration: 3 days

Description

The course is intended to show the value of Enterprise Resource Planning Systems (ERPs) in transforming the manner that organizations do business. It will explain the time range (15 years) and rationale thereof for ERP projects, demystify the associated complexity, resource needs, and risks. Further, participants will learn such risk mitigation strategies (against potential project failure) as strong executive sponsorship, communication, focused stakeholder involvement, and good project management.

The course expounds on the benefits of timely decision-making, agency (or department) cooperation/collaboration (especially with respect to business process re-engineering), change management, and a clear delineation of roles and responsibilities.

Participants will understand the long-view benefits realization as not all benefits will be realized on the go-live day, noting that transformation is never-ending, and benefits will be realized along the way.

Who Should Attend

The course is designed for leaders/management, business executives who are considering implementing or are in the phase of implementing an ERP solution and are ready to understand the key steps in ensuring successful implementation of ERP systems. The training is vendor-neutral and is based on the guidelines, responsibilities, obligations, and best practices that validate the successful implementation of ERP solutions.

Why You Should Attend

The highlights include understanding the how and why of ERP; the why and how of ERP in the public sector, including key benefits such as:

  • Automation: Implementing an ERP solution is a major move away from manual paper-driven methods to an advanced system that gives you a comprehensive view of the entire organization’s operations.
  • Information Protection: an organization’s solution not only simplifies fast and accurate data storage but also aims to provide security from unauthorized users.
  • Cybersecurity: An ERP system provides access to the authorized users to use the same system and data across diverse locations and in diverse ways.
  • Effectiveness: An ERP system rules out the need for data duplication across multiple locations.
  • Centralized functions: An ERP system has various modules such as finance and accounting, budget management, HR and payroll, procurement, inventory & stores, project accounting, and management, etc.
  • Efficiency: The system scales down operational costs involved by eliminating re-work and manual handling.
  • Productivity: Since an ERP system harmonizes data and various processes across different departments and geographies, it accelerates service delivery to the public, too
  • Timeliness: ERP implementation has become essential for government organizations since the system helps in saving time and reducing expenses and also enables decisions to be made quickly with minimal risk
  • Decision making: An ERP system provides decision-makers with more accurate and centralized data, allowing them to make more brisk and informative decisions and build confidence in employees.

A-15 Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) & ERM Framework @ Jan 24 - Naivasha; March 28 - Nairobi; August 1 - Mombasa; Aug 15 - Online; Oct 15 - Nairobi; Dec. 13 - Nakuru
Aug 1 @ 9:00 am – Aug 4 @ 5:00 pm

Proactive Risk Management is core to organizations’ survival

An Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) approach is the most effective means of risk management

4[1]-Day Introduction Enterprise Risk Management Training[2]

Risk management has emerged as a well-entrenched discipline that should be an important part of every organization. With changing times, however, traditional risk management techniques are not sufficient to comprehensively address organizations’ risks. Organizations need to adopt, define, implement, and maintain an enterprise risk management (ERM) approach that ensures comprehensive risk management across the organization.

ERM is a process by which organizations identify measure, manage, and disclose all key risks to enhance organizations’ value to stakeholders.  ERM pertains to (a) considering risk from all sources (financial, strategic, and operational); (b) measuring the integrated impact of multiple risks occurring simultaneously; (c) aggregating exposures to the enterprise level; and (d) integrating risk information into strategic planning, based on the organization’s risk appetite.

This course draws from leading practices as captured in standards and application to managing risk in enterprises, including the COSO framework, ISO 31000, and ISO 22301, ISO9001:2015 among others.

Objectives

Expose participants to existing and emerging practices in ERM, specifically:

  • Examine the “why, what, when, how, and who” aspects of ERM
  • Establish the relevance of ERM and ERM practices in an enterprise
  • Develop practical steps towards ERM management systems in your enterprise
  • Demonstrate how to plan, develop and implement an Enterprise Risk Management Framework
  • Discuss risk-based approach in ISO9001:2015 and demonstrate tools for QMS automation thereof
