IRMSA Risk Report 2020 - We need your input! 

16 October 2019

The Institute of Risk Management of South Africa’s (IRMSA) Risk Report is one of the navigation tools that IRMSA provides to create opportunities for collaboration between all role players impacted by risk. This Report creates a sound basis for risk conversations that should inevitably lead to collaboration between the parties involved and result in an inclusive approach when making decisions and managing uncertainty.

 IRMSA collaborated with FPI to provide a “futures” view that allows readers of the report to contribute in the drive towards enhancing risk management into a predictive capability.

In line with IRMSA’s theme of #Impact - A Year of Risk Activism, FPI invites members to participate in this 15-minute survey aimed at establishing the level of involvement and effectiveness of risk management in our members’ own organisations.

The survey follows a very unique approach – it is all about story telling! 

What is the ask from our members: We want you to click on this link and share your story of a real experience. Once you have shared your story, you will be presented with a one-page questionnaire about your story. The entire process should not take longer than 15 minutes.   

Participation is voluntary and ensuring confidentiality is our highest priority. We will share the outcomes and patterns from this study in the IRMSA 2020 Risk Report which will be published in February 2020. As part of your participation, FPI will be recognised for the input to the 2020 IRMSA Risk Report.
