In the unit we cover a wide range of risk management activities. This assignment and the associated group student presentations will enable us to examine and compare risk management in different types of companies / organisations.


Your Mission

Students are to form groups of 3 and 4.


You are to select an organisation then prepare and critically analyse a Risk Management Plan for that organisation. Each student group should choose a different business type and liaise with the Lecturer to ensure a suitable mix is achieved across all groups. Choose from: Small Proprietary Company, Large Proprietary Company, Listed Public Company, Not for Profit or Sole Trader.


You must use risk related research and supporting literature to synthesise and critically analyse the details within your Risk Management Plan. Using your risk related research you should also determine the strengths of the Risk Management Plan, along with any areas for improvement and your recommendations.


Refer to the instructions/rules section for minimum requirements relating to the research required.


Note: for large organisations students may want to concentrate on a specific risk area e.g. develop a Risk Management Plan for the Treasury Division of a large Bank.
