Do you and your department recognise these hardships in regards to Risk Assessment and Management?

  • There’s not really anything to do about our risk taking. The risks we take are chosen by management. I have no real influence
  • I have handed risks to management several times. I never get any feedback. No action, no decisions – sometimes not even questions. It all seems pointless
  • Risk Management is required, but the way we do it provides no real value and takes up way too much time in a busy day
  • No one has made it clear what I’m expected to do in the area
  • We just end up examining random corners, but what eventually hits us always comes from a completely different angle than we expected
  • I do not know how to identify and manage risks effectively, but I can’t really admit it or ask for help. A concrete understanding of Risk Management is expected of people at my level in the organisation, and I do not want to lose face or get fired for incompetence. So of course I know all about Risk Management!

If only one of these statements apply, our Risk Management Course will be right for you.. We set out to change your perspective during the training – to give you a clear view of a profitable road ahead.

Consultants like Nicolai are my most important instrument when boosting the organisation.

Since 2014 we have worked closely with Nicolai Elberling and partners. He has helped us identify and document our most important policies and procedures. He assisted us in defining and implementing controls and in creating and facilitating our new IT strategy.

Early in this period, we aimed at going public. Our IT-department grew from 5 to 38 employees. Complexity grew. We never did go public, but ended up being bought by Canon. Nicolai helped us prepare for the transition with GRC. He helped us build transparency and accountability while holding on to governance and control.

Consultants like Nicolai are my most important instrument when boosting the organisation. Without them it’s simply not possible to change the organisation, the culture and the mind-sets fast enough.

No fancy PowerPoint shows – only tangible hands-on advice and GRC assistance.

“Nicolai from elberling.uk helped us establish the right governance structure and balance roles and responsibilities in the company.

He worked with us in a very pragmatic and hands-on manner. Not only did he help us identify what to balance in terms of governance, Risk Management and Compliance. He helped us find the focus we needed. He assisted in delegating responsibility, defining new roles for each employee and engaging the team. No fancy powerpoint shows – only tangible hands-on advice and GRC assistance!

All members of our management team are taking governance responsibility now - and we’re no longer slowed down by the bottleneck of top executive decision making.

All the stakeholders involved are very happy with the process as well as the results. Everybody seems to be rising to the challenges of new roles and responsibilities.

That’s why every hour spent was well worth the money! I highly recommend the GRC management of elberling.uk.”
